ABV: 11.0

It’s impressive to see what the humble Welchriesling can give, grown on a good site and sympathetically vinified.
The nose is open and expressive, with a little candied peel and fresh herb in addition to citrus and pear. The palate has a lifted and quite concentrated edge, which feels equally expressive to the nose. There’s an attractive feeling of wildness, suggesting that the wine has been delicately handled and not manipulated. It’s been allowed to take its own direction and it’s the better for it.
Delicate but characterful and refreshing.
