Made in Cornwall with grapes from across Southern England (lots from Essex I hear). What appears to be quite a fun, fruit-driven wine on the nose does start to throw up some lovely complex shades with a bit of time in the glass. There’s strawberry macaroon and redcurrant fruit at first, together with this very English hedgerow fruit character (crabapple/hawthorn jelly*). Behind it all there’s sweetness of clementine and ripe pink grapefruit as well as little touches of spice and cream. Fresh, straightforward and balanced on the palate, which is quite tight right now.
