Lovely generous nose of roasted apples and pears, raspberry tart and candied lemon zest. Ripe yellow stone fruit, sweet creaminess and sweet apricot kernel blend into an open, gently caramel-tinged palate, quite light at heart but turned out with a few deliciously developed flourishes. A producer to watch.

Based on two showing this has some severe problems. Bruised, acetic, tired. Just like the Wiston Rosé 2014 and many of the Jenkyn Place wines that I tasted at the start of 2019. Some disgorgement issues at Wiston I think.

60% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, 10 % Pinot Meunier. Really good Pinot Noir is centre stage here – so pretty with ripe red pear, summery redcurrant pudding and cream. The Chardonnay citrus is in supporting-actor mode, just offering a little zip. Ginger snaps and a bit of toffee apple bring some subtle depth – I think it is enjoying a little bit of post-disgorgement age
