Cameron Dou­glas MS

Decanter - - PANEL TASTING -

■ Aunts­field, Sin­gle Vine­yard, South­ern Val­leys, Marl­bor­ough 2016 En­cap­su­lates what’s at the heart of Marl­bor­ough’s Sau­vi­gnon Blanc mes­sage – en­ergy, pre­cise at­tack and flavours that last. Clas­sic. 98 Drink 2017-2024

■ Chur­ton, Marl­bor­ough 2016 A lovely ripe spec­trum of fruit at the core sur­rounded by lay­ers of lees-led light savoury mo­ments and hints of as­para­gus. Zesty, mealy struc­ture, weight­ier with a lovely lengthy fin­ish. 95 Drink 2017-2025

■ The Dar­ling, Or­ganic, Marl­bor­ough 2016 Flinty, crunchy aroma and tex­ture; great fruit com­plex­ity and a hint of spice too, from lees and per­haps older oak. Served at cel­lar tem­per­a­ture and not 4°C with the beers, this is de­light­ful. 88 Drink 2017-2021
