Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (2021)
Bright and expressive, the 2021 Estate Reserve Chardonnay is nimble with a voluminous frame and slightly nervous nose with hints of citrus blossom. Medium to full-bodied, the Chardonnay has impeccable weight and a fine mineral tension that continues to unwind and uncoil across the mid-palate. This delightful and food-friendly wine will continue to please until the end of the decade. Give it a try. Rating:- 92+

James Suckling (JS) : 91 Points (2021)
Aromas of lemon curd, flint and rosemary stem. Medium-bodied with fresh acidity and green apple and pear fruit. Nicely balanced with steady length.

Tim Atkin (TA) : 92 Points (2017)
Not quite as exciting as the 2015, but it had just been bottle when I tasted it in March 2018. Tight and focused, it has plenty of crunchy acidity, stylish oak and an elegant, stony, lemon butter-like finish. 2018-22. Alcohol: 13%

Wine Spectator (WS) : 91 Points (2015)
A plump, rounded style, with crowd-pleasing pineapple, yellow apple and pear flavors that are creamy and lush in feel. Brioche and macadamia nut accents carry the finish. Drink now through 2019. 1,916 cases made.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2015)
This leads with a powerful toasted-oak overlay to the ripe fruit tones of yellow melon, grilled apple and peach preserves. The mouthfeel is round and full, with a slightly pithy texture that lends some structure to the robust palate. Medium acidity keeps the richness in check, while a pleasant minty afterthought dances through the close. Drink now–2020.

Mullineux Syrah 2021
Mullineux Syrah 2021
Our aim with our Syrah is to give true and complete expression to the Shale & Schist and Granite terroirs in which the vines grow. Approximately half the grapes are whole-bunch fermented and all fermentation is with indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged for 11 months in French oak, 15% new. The wine is bottled unfiltered and unfined.

Vinedos de Alcohuaz 'Grus de Alcohuaz' Mezcla Tinta 2018
The second wine of Alcohuaz was named after the southern constellation of the Crane, the vessel of materialization between divinity and humanity. Grus owes its characteristics to grapes that come from single vineyards located at multiple altitudes throughout the Alcohuaz property.
