Powerful, concentrated stuff, fuller-bodied, quite developed, with pithy citrus and apple flavours framed by slightly smoky, firm grippy structure. Tails off a bit at the end, but otherwise, very serious. A food-wine with discreet wood and malolactic influence. The wine is a bit too powerful for the dish presented, but it doesn?t lose anything in the match.

Bouquet of preserved lemon with chalky undertones. Crisp and clean with fresh lemon citrus, green apple notes and plenty of drive and persistence, finishing long and chalky. When paired with the hash-brown the chalky undertones are accentuated, diminishing the fruit notes of the wine.

Attractive enough, lacks some freshness, cheesiness on the palate. Lacking some charm but well made and with some complexity. The palate appears hard with the dish

Lifted mealy, dusty, chewy robust flinty textured wine, crisp acid line refined palate. Very drying finish. The food pairing works in unison. The crisp acidity of the wine cuts through the sour-cream and potato flavours.

A savoury wine, with lovely toasted nuts and brioche aromas. Clean acidity, with a powerful mid palate, great length

Pale to mid-yellow gold. Quite intense quince and vanilla bean aromas with hints of lemon/mandarin rind. A toasty palate with citrus hints. Shorter length. Dish rendered wine slightly bitter.

Simple ? pear drop aroma. Thiol simple fruit. Not much going on here and wine has little length and carry. Simple. With Food ? no change ? simple wine, not much interest.
