  • Williams Selyem Unoaked Chardonnay 2017

    £67.99

    “The 2017 Unoaked Chardonnay has a pretty, fresh nose with citrus blossom, tangerine, spring honey and stone fruit aromas. The palate is light-bodied with pure fruits in the mouth, tangy acidity and a long, floral finish. 755 cases were made. Drink: 2019-2023. 90 points”

  • Williams Selyem Vista Verde Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

    £86.49

    “A wine of precision and understatement, the 2014 Pinot Noir Vista Verde Vineyard offers up generous sweet red and bluish-hued berry flavors, with good supporting acidity and nuance to match. The Vista Verde is one of the smaller-scaled Pinots. Here it is the wine’s balance that impresses most. A closing kick of acidity adds brightness and energy. Drink: 2018-2016. 92 points

    This is an impressive set of 2014 Pinot Noirs from Williams Selyem. Specifically, the wines offer terrific depth and plenty of vintage character – both not always easy to come by in this vintage – in the classic, mid-weight style that has earned the winery a devoted following over the last several decades.”

  • Williams Selyem Weir Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

    £99.99

    “The 2017 Pinot Noir Weir Vineyard is beautifully lifted and precise, as wines from this appellation tend to be. Crushed flowers, crushed berries and mint add nuance as this high-toned, perfumed Pinot opens up in the glass. The Weir will appeal most to readers who appreciate delicacy in Pinot Noir. Drinking window: 2020-2032. 93 points

    Williams Selyem generally releases their wines in two groupings, so I don’t often have an opportunity to taste them all together, as I did this year. I was deeply impressed. From top to bottom, the 2017s are absolutely delicious and also quite differentiated.”

  • Williams Selyem Westside Road Neighbors Pinot Noir 2017

    £119.99

    “The 2017 Pinot Noir Westside Road Neighbors is another wine in this range that is all about understatement and nuance. Medium in body yet also quite deep and resonant, the Westside Road Neighbors is succulent and inviting from the very first taste. Black cherry, plum, violet and cloves all add to the wine’s dark-ish leaning flavor profile. Drinking window: 2022-2034. 94 points

  • Wine & Soul Pintas 2016

    £69.99

    “The 2016 Pintas is a field blend from old vines aged for 20 months in 30% new French oak. It comes in at 14% alcohol. Not quite bottled when seen, this was out of cask and the final blend. Aggressive in its youth, this also seems wonderfully fresh, with enticing and lifted fruit, plus a big, lingering finish filled with flavor. Very tight, this is going to need a couple of years to come around—and much longer to acquire complexity—but the tannins are not overly hard. It will still be approachable fairly young. This is another super Pintas, a great follow-up to the 2015. Better? Maybe, although this is a little hard to read. We’ll see as they both settle in over the next few years. The typical generalization in Douro on the two vintages is that the 2015s are a little fresher and more elegant, while the 2016s are a little more concentrated—granting many exceptions. For her part, Sandra Tavares said this had a bit more depth, while the 2015 had a bit more charm. Ultimately, they are different sides of the same coin, pretty close to one another in style. Both seem rather brilliant. As they age, we’ll have fun seeing who wins. Drink: 2022-2046. 95-97 points”
