Wonderful orchard aromas filled the room by combining green apples, apricots and peaches with fresh grass and a plethora of wild flowers. Sweetness came from heather honey and apple crumble but with a spicy cinnamon twist and a dash of orange syrup. A hint of green then re-emerged like a pine forest floor with a hint of clean earth. The palate carried an initial wallop of chilli that tamed with water to gingerbread and chutney before becoming creamy like crème fraiche and pancake batter. The finish ventured into dark cherries and raspberry bubble gum with firm wood tannins providing some backbone.
