    Archers Vineyard, Lenswood; a selection of the best plots; matured 10 months in seasoned French oak barriques. The cool, wet 2017 season has given birth to a complex and savoury pinot filled with all the character of sous bois, game, potpourri and bouquet garni. A vibrant core of red cherry and poached strawberry is matched by cool, bright acidity and fine-ground tannins. A long finish holds short-term potential.

    This shows the cooler, wetter vintage and has aromas of fresh and dried strawberry with a tawny, leafy edge. Brown tea and earth, too. The palate offers dried strawberries, soft tannins and a drinkable feel. Drink now. Glass stopper.
