Drawn from across a range of sites from Brian Croser's beloved Piccadilly Valley.

Sees 30% new oak, with just over 300 dozen made. Citrus, lemon curds, honeydew, touches of meal, spicy oak.

The sour tang of lemon, a racy, almost nervy energy to it; acid that verily reaches into the far recesses of the palate, secreting itself into the cheeks, before the slow withdrawal.

Intensity of finish, a bold slap of flavour, lingering long. 92
