Cameron Douglas MS Reviews
2018 Merlot Cabernet Franc Malbec
Ripe, complex, fruity and varietal with aromas and flavours of spicy Doris plums, blackberry and dried herbs and roasted bell-pepper. A spicy, woody layer with vanilla and bacon scents adds depth. Firm and dry on the palate with a mix of fruit and wood tannins layering in foundation textures along with acidity and youthful tension. Lengthy finish, well made and ready to drink from today if decanted or from late 2022 through 2028.
2019 Reserve Chardonnay
Nutty, creamy, full, ripe and richly scented bouquet. On the palate – flavours of baked nectarine and peach then grapefruit and spicy custard. Toasty barrel flavours with baked goods, clove and butter bring complexity and depth. Plenty of acidity and fine wood tannins bring contrast and freshness, mouthfeel and length. A lovely example with best drinking from today and through 2026+.
2020 Pinot Gris
Fruity, complex, varietal and with soft aromatic spices delivers an intriguing bouquet. On the palate – very silky texture with contrasting acidity, a core of fruits with apple and quince, pear and some citrus pith. Balanced and well made with a persistently fruity finish. Best drinking from today and through 2023.
Pure, fresh, varietal and enticing bouquet. Aromas of fresh apricot and yellow flowers, White spice and a touch of bacon. A fine lees autolysis adds complexity and intrigue.

A lovely example ready to drink upon purchase and through 2025.
