James Halliday – Pinot with a Mediterranean vibe. Full, but feels ethereal. Firm, but feels svelte. A mid ruby at best. Succulent. A meld of fecund raspberry, root spice, clove, cranberry and rosehip, drawn at the waist by a firm skein of saline, puckering tannin, sandy and pumice-like. The founder of the contemporary grenache zeitgeist. Fine. Ned Goodwin MW Published 13 August 2021
