Notes

We found this to be a pretty textbook example of this great make. Sheep wool at first nosing was joined by waxed canvas, herbal infusions, limestone, white pepper, starched linens, white flowers, gorse and baking parchment. A floral pirouette of elderflower and lovage kept things fresh. Reduction offered waxed lemons, dried tarragon, boiled lime sweets, rolling tobacco, Thai basil, anthracite embers and lemongrass. On the palate we noted an earthy clay vibe initially, then mentholic, drying and showing notes of sunflower oil, herbal teas, milk bottle sweets, miso broth and sandalwood. Water enhanced the sweetness and brought citrus jellies, juniper, cough sweets, hawthorn a chalky mouthfeel and a sense of stony minerality. Faultless and classical.
