  • Kelley Fox Durant Vineyard Lark Block Chardonnay 2018

    £38.99

    “Pale yellow-gold. Meyer lemon, pear nectar, saffron, jasmine and toasted brioche on the intensely perfumed, mineral-accented nose. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering densely packed citrus and orchard fruit, floral and sweet butter flavors and a nervy suggestion of saline minerality. Shows superb energy and mineral cut on the penetrating finish, which features a repeating floral quality and a touch of oyster shell. This wine’s blend of power and delicacy is remarkable. Drinking window: 2022-2028. 95 points

    Having established herself as one of Oregon’s top producers of Pinot Noir, Kelley Fox is increasingly turning her attention to white wines, which she admits are probably her true “wine loves” on a personal level. She drinks a lot of Chablis, Blanc de Blancs Champagne, and Puligny-Montrachet, when she can find it, and it’s easy to deduce that given her light touch with Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc, even in hot years.”

  • Kelley Fox Hyland Vineyard Coury Clone Pinot Noir 2017

    £49.99

    “Vivid red. Spice-accented raspberry, cherry and rose pastille aromas, along with hints of woodsmoke, cola and baking spices. Silky and focused on the palate, offering lively red fruit, allspice and floral pastille flavors that deliver power with zero fat. Fine-grained tannins frame a very long, spice-tinged finish that shows outstanding clarity and building florality. 50% whole clusters. Drinking window: 2021-2029. 95 points

    Kelley Fox has successfully navigated the 2018 vintage, which often produced large-scale, dark-fruited wines, crafting a set of graceful, exotically perfumed and balanced wines that in no way suggest that they’re the product of a ripe year. Her ‘18s lean toward her 2016s, 2015s and 2014s in style for their relative depth and power, with plenty of whole cluster influence and an unadorned personality, thanks no doubt to the use of neutral oak.”

  • Kelley Fox Maresh Vineyard Royal Ann Block Pinot Noir 2018

    £59.99

    “Limpid magenta. Expansive aromas of ripe red fruits, incense and Asian spices carry smoky mineral and floral overtones. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering alluringly sweet raspberry preserve, rose pastille and spicecake flavors that deepen and spread out slowly with air. Delivers a compelling blend of power and elegance, finishing with silky, polished tannins and superb clarity and floral-driven persistence. 50% whole clusters. Drinking window: 2022-2030. 95 points
