Notes

A fragrant and floral start took us on a journey through ripe figs and vanilla sponge cake whilst spicy notes created a sandalwood sarcophagus lined with toasted almonds. Grilled aubergine introduced earthy elements as we were lowered into the ground and topped with hedgerow fruits to become a living mixed berry tart. Fruit jelly sweets continued the theme to be joined by orange zest and dried apricots on a bed of custard powder. The palate tingled with ginger and horseradish sauce as we found ourselves inside an old spice cupboard. Sweet and sticky toffee then trickled over marmalade before the finish arrived wrapped in soft leather. After spending 10 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead this was transferred to a 2nd fill chenin blanc barrique for the remainder of its maturation.
