No Clos Radio Riesling was grown on jory and loess soils, hand-harvested then pressed a few hours after the fruit was foot trodden in picking bins. It was fermented and aged in neutral oak Burgundy puncheons for 10 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with 30ppm total sulfur. Clean, zippy white wine with just a touch of sugar. Varietal expression 101.
“This is sort of a ‘rosé’ for us". As you’ll see on the back of the bottle of Where Ya PJs AT? it states ‘rose-ish’. Savoury, sour-sweet red berry vibes, a lick of white and red balsamic tang amongst the green herbs and spritely, saline mineral characters. Soft texture with a light chalky-powdery grip. Good little drink.
No Clos Radio Pinot Gris is marked with cuddly scents. It’s peachy with green melon skin and red apples. Feels a touch ripe in aromas but flavours are lifted and bright with grapefruity bitterness and limey zing, which works well and refreshing. Lean texture with a spicy warmth and cherry pit chewiness. A very enjoyable wine.
Rouge de Gris is a skin-contact Pinot Gris, giving crunchier, more tannic wines that stand out. Hazy copper colour with a milky tint. Aromatic sweet flowers and peach skin to start. Textural. It’s treading with light flavours, mandarin juice and pink grapefruit. A rather gentle version of skin contact wine with lots of finesse.
Temperance Hill is a unique wine is a result of the remarkable Harmony Peak vineyard. Crafted with utmost care, the wine undergoes fermentation and aging in Burgundy barrels, giving a wine that is marked with exotic tropical fruit, delightful spices, orange peel and pear. Balanced by its natural acidity and well-built structure.
Finally, No Clos Radio Gewürztraminer stands out with its notes of rosewater, lychee, ginger, musk, fresh apricot. It’s fresh, a little nutty, almost a sake-like character, juicy and slightly flinty, perfume and again the lychee, but with some citrus acidity and flavour, and a long gently slippery umami-laced finish. Bang on.
