    September 15, 2022 - North London TWS Tastings series: South Africa (Must and Lees, N1) (Must and Lees N1): Bright red fruit and a little sweat on the nose
    Nicer on the palate but with a slightly sharp finish

    September 15, 2022 - Resplendent, juicy, pure red fruits; not the last word in complexity but delicious and delightful. While it will last a few more years there is no reason to delay gratification, because it will probably just evolve rather than improve.

    September 15, 2022 - Oh this is great. Really attractive nose of violets and roses. Just gorgeously fragrant. So light and ethereal and dancing. Just super delicious. Sweet, enveloping. Tight, precise acidity. Long and giving. Utterly delicious.

    September 15, 2022 - South African wines of North London (Must & Lees): Pretty, pale appearance - perhaps lighter than the 2010 Pinot alongside it! Very Pinot on the nose, with a touch of savour and then subtle rose aromas with more air. Tart cranberry and raspberry on the palate, still quite grippy and with a bit of woody tannin too. I'd prefer this with another couple of years in the bottle, I reckon.

    September 15, 2022 - South Africa (Must and Lees, N1): Very light in colour, a medium see-through pinkish red. Nose not immediately sceaming of Pinot Noir (or at least not in the same way I felt the 2010 Hamilton did), but I felt was much more typical of the grape on the palate with elegant raspberry and cranberry. A spicy kick at the finish was appreciated, with tannins obviously still quite present.
