Petit Milo review by Treve Ring for Wine Align

Petit Milo is a hybrid grape (one of the Blattners) specifically suited to our cool, maritime climate. Here, 21 grams/litre of residual sugar is gobbled up handily by racy acidity, buoyed by ripe pear, pink grapefruit, white peach and fine, pithy spice. Mid-sweet and pure fruited, this makes for a lovely aperitif with melon and prosciutto and sweetly fresh spot prawns. Well done.

Pinot Noir Review by Anthony Gismondi

Unsworth walks the fine line between delicate and fresh but with the substance and mouth-filling textures we crave in our pinot noir. Strawberries, watermelon and raspberries tangle with a cool savoury, mushroom underside to keep it real. Naturally vibrant and silky finish. Pair with fresh salmon. Well done.  88/100
