Fresh, crisp apple and chamomile nose, leading to a slightly saline, light palate with apple skin and tangy flavours. Youthful, lively and cheerful. The food makes the wine appear leaner and lighter/more tart.,

Toasty, nutty aromas with hints of lemon, unfold to reveal a dry, well-concentrated palate with toasty complexity, fine bead and great drive and length. The wine appears more chalky and drying when paired with the hashbrown.

Complex, nutty and attractive. Rich and full palate. Long and lingering. Excellent. Similar with the food matching. Long and lingering

Lifted mealy, bread and complex secondary aromas. A good pulse of vibrancy and fruit. Crisp fresh acid, finely structured wine finishes dry and bright. The apple-potato flavours dominate the wine pairing. The wine appears swamped by the food. Not a good match.

Fresh and vibrant in the glass, with a hint of toasted nuts, and buttered brioche, a fine bead, with a creamy finish. Some lovely subtle delicate acidity

Very pale yellow gold. Toasty, brioche notes with hints of cream aromas. Fine mouse, fresh palate, more toasty flavours across palate.

Youthful straw greens. Much better nose, creamy, gas-pipe mineral and yeasty goodness. Attractive. Great classic palate. Terrific acid line and length. Elegant and flavoursome. Very good. With Food ? successful mix. Clean line and yeast length does wonders to the food. Lifts the grilled notes, flavour accentuated and palate structure really workds nicely.
