The Oddbins Take

Imagine putting a band together every year, just to make the music you could hear in your head. You could choose any line up, of any size, and know that the egos wouldn't clash and they'd focus totally on the music. Sean Thackrey's been doing that with grapes for his Pleiades wine for the past 21 years. This year Pinot Noir and Sangiovese make up the front line, but as ever Thackrey has written for his sidemen as well. He brings the best out of the blend, which includes Viognier, Mourvèdre and Petite Syrah, to create a wine of truly Ellingtonian orchestration. It has heartening flavours of orange peel, red berries and warm spice that form wave upon wave of harmonious brilliance.
