Notes

We found pleasant sweetness on the nose (pears in syrup, Turkish Delight, raspberry pop-tarts) flower meadows (with cornflowers and poppies), some sanded pine and hints of ‘cool as a mountain stream’ menthol. The palate had pancakes in syrup, cherry, cranberry and juicy, slippery mango; plus suspicions of toasted coconut and tobacco. The nose with water captivated us with its demulcent sweetness – honey on toast, Neapolitan ice-cream and Maltesers – perfectly agreeable. The palate had a glorious chewy and smooth mouth-feel – velvet butterscotch, toffee and fudge, with some lovely toasted wood and a little peppermint and mild chilli heat at the end.
