Notes

The nose spoke fondly of a July barley harvest, raw cereal notes, hay, cut grass, with zingy sherbet and lemon sorbet. There was also a wholesome earthy oakiness (potting table in a greenhouse?), very sweet oranges, soft leather and tobacco. The neat taste had lots of lemon bitterness moving into intense orange barley sugar sweetness, finishing with crème caramel pots, grapefruit and light vanilla. With water we entered a florist’s in summer, and were served lemon syrup cocktails. There was an intriguing “fizzy buzz” about it (Cremola foam), eucalyptus oil and the sweetness of orange with the sour edge of fresh lime.
