Cellared in bottle since 2019 with no competition entries. We did submit it in Sep 2021 to Tim Atkin MW for his definitive "England 2021 Special Report" - tasting by Tom Hewson We were delighted when it was awarded 85 points, enough for inclusion, with the comment:

"Rather interesting, quite austere with lime cordial and sage. Slender and quite Riesling-like, with plenty of tangy, limey acidity."
