Cotswold Hills 2018
I'm biased, as an alumnus of the Royal Agricultural College, but this wine out of the university's vineyards sings of the summer! 85% Ortega grapes from a six acre vineyard near Down Ampney. This wine, from the superb 2018 vintage, is brilliantly poised and superbly balanced. Ortega's natural zesty, racy, acidity shines through, balanced by the ripe stone fruits developed during a great summer.
