The vibrant sweetness of the nose (apple strudel and custard, caramel apple granny cake, vanilla fudge, strawberry jam tarts) was counter-balanced by subtle, seductive woodiness from years in the embrace of oak. The palate had juicy, mouth-watering fruits (apple, grape, pears cooked in honey) – then a flawless finish of liquorice, clove, anise and suggestions of dunnage oak. The reduced nose became more perfumed – powder-puff, rosewater, fresh linen, sherbet straws and cigarette packets –endless sniffing pleasure. The palate now gave us dried papaya, candied orange dipped in chocolate, apple and pear desserts, cinnamon and tobacco – all our cares and preoccupations were banished.
