Polperro – 3/09/2013

Pinot Gris 2012
Tight subtle spicy quince. Biting acidity, borderline tart, trying to tread too fine a line, harvested too early.

Even Keel Chardonnay 2011
Quite ripe and rich, leesy old oak. On the fat broad side, lacking in enough body or texture, unfocused.

Mill Hill Chardonnay 2010
A little minerality, jumps out of the glass, savoury rubbery ritz notes, some middle eastern spice. Full bright ripe intense, quite lifted on the palate, nice focus. Generosity and length.

Mill Hill Pinot Noir 2011
Quite subtle lean charcuterie red fruits. Light fresh bright intense yet subtle fruit and nice integrated savoury meat notes too. Levity and brevity.

Landividdy Lane Pinot Noir 2011
Fairly closed dark nutty red fruits. Tighter leaner but also lighter without the freshness. Lean, perhaps a little thin.
