J Pringle Chardo 2011

The second vintage of releases from Circe wines is immensely appealing to me. May the partnership between Dan Buckle and Aaron Drummond continue to flourish.

More flesh than the Red Hill South Vineyard version. It’s apparent on the nose and in the mouth. Which is not to say it lacks detail or incisiveness. Citrus and nectarine flecked with honeydew melon, all held together with integrated acidity and smoked almond oak. More emphasis on texture here but it’s punchy through the finish with flinty accents. A triumph in every way.

Excellent – Jeremy Pringle
