“The farm voice” they say at Rippon, summing up the entire estate as a whole. There’s a massively important emotional/cultural connection promoted at Rippon – the handshake between all team members at the start of the day, the entire team hoeing the vines together to begin the work hours, the cleansing ale together at the end of the day – where biodynamics involves not only farming, but how the human element interacts with the place. I like these sentiments.

Savoury scents, sweet earth, briar, dark cherry, Chinese five spice, faint amaro sour-sweet characters. Love pinot like this. So succulent in the palate – long, faintly sappy, crisp tannins, beautiful silky carry through the palate, finishes with tobacco-like savouriness and amaro-orange zestiness. All perfectly meshed, so much to think about per sip. Wonderful. MIKE BENNIE, The Wine Front 2017
