Awards: Decanter 2016 Platinum Best in Category: Palo Cortado - 96 points
Maxime Cheurlin was brought down from the family Champagne business, to attend to the Cote de Nuits burgundies. Really excellent wines have been produced, silky smooth, chewy but velvety fruit, seruous yet friendly wines.
A classic blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Vermentino, the Maison Williams Chase Rosé is a beautiful paleshade of pink. Bone dry, the wine boasts delicate aromas of peaches and raspberries, followed by a refreshing note of grapefruit on a backdrop of savoury Provençal herbs. A moreish creamy texture sits in harmony with a steely minerality working towards a long, mouth-watering, lingering finish. The wine is a singing tribute to Provence and the long sunny days from this very special part of the world.
Nose is dark and savoury, deep violet, notes of dark chocolate and oak. The palate is firm and well structured with dry tannins and acidity. Dark fruit, green pepper and savoury driven. Very dry, a must serve with food. The perfect match for steak.
Wiston Estate Blanc de Noirs NV. A blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Pinot Meunier. Nice foamy mousse. Lovely palate, great fruit and acidity, a lovely wine from Wiston. Punchy, vibrant, and lemon zest sharp.

The label depicts in a 2D way the movement a pencil describes on a piece of paper when dangled from a stand and left to blow in the wind. The wind being the Viento Zephiros.
