out of stock?? you can’t do this to us
I know, David!! This was exactly the face I did when I found out this afternoon:
Fingers crossed we’ll get more, or at least the next vintage!
Red has a cloves smell to me. Smells a little like Gluhwein
Mrs CC: slight hint of petrol and spicy: think cinnamon, cloves, mixed spice
Let’s all follow @Croquetchris’ lead and have a swirl and a sniff of the red. First impressions?
Ach, bit disorganised here, still need to open the red.
Red berry fruit, ripe cherries, hint pencil lead
We’ve had ours sitting in the glass for an hour. Cloves, a bit of nail polish remover.
Not half as disorganised as me! I thought there was a bottle of the red waiting for me in the Showroom but due to crossed wires… they didn’t have it! So I’m Moric-less.
I’ll just be living vicariously through you all tonight…
That’s quick. Not cheating are you😉
What a fabulous nose.
Sorry, that’s not very specific.
Sweet strawberry and pomegranate followed by, liquorice, roses, parma violets somehow pulled together by a chalky cinnamon and allspice aroma. There a little eucalyptus hidden among the spices too.
We’ll just be finishing the white. Have a bottle of Trinity Hill Syrah on standby in case the red cravings come calling!
Med purple-ruby. Med+ nose: quite bright & tart: redcurrant, red cherry, an acetic edge, a little smoke/ash, cinnamon & clove spice.
Must be an Elvish thing.
Sorry everyone - my feline tasting ‘assistant’ was being most disruptive.
I’m fascinated to see how this one goes down with people as I am a bit of a fanboy when it comes to Roland and Moric, and am thrilled we’re stocking something of his.
I was chatting to one of my colleagues earlier who visited Roland at his home last year. It sounded a bit like stepping into an episode of Grand Designs but with wine all over the place - I am now very envious. The main thing she kept saying is what an incredibly passionate winemaker he is: a person who does things his way and not afraid to say what he thinks.
As for the nose, I think it’s just delightful - so delicate and red-berry fruited but some real school-desky clovey interest too
Ha ha … we are organised
Mrs CC: another couple of swirls and I’m getting a very faint hint of farmyard.
Yes, lovely fragrant spices among the fruits. This wine is getting me all inarticulate and weak at the knees.
