We found a very interesting nose – elderflower and milky dandelion, manuka honey, ripe peaches and ‘picking strawberries on a warm day’ – another panellist got ‘milk chocolate smeared on chewed cot bars’. The palate was sweet, fruity and spicy – bramble jelly, passion fruit and a well-known tropical fruit drink – but with sustained oaky, spicy warmth coming through – cinnamon, pepper and chocolate ginger biscuits. The reduced nose suggested comfort and emotional warmth – apple pie in a basket and coconut sun-tan lotion on a sun-warmed wooden jetty. The palate was deliciously sweet and tart and juicy – sherbet straws, apple strudel, wine gums and pomegranate.
