Description

The fresh, floral nose took us to a cottage kitchen where apple pies were being prepared (green apple, sugar, cinnamon); also pot-pourri, cedar wood, cigar boxes and bananas. The palate was an unusual combination of sweet viscosity and earthy spice – sweet potato skins, brown sugar crunch, lemon pepper, ginger, chilli and new wood. On the reduced nose, the floral character increased (hyacinth, jasmine, carnation) – and we got tree bark, canvas, cork and lemon oil. The reduced palate had sweet and sticky treacle sponge, apricot jam and honey lemon Lockets, with an earthy woody finish (garden canes, willow, dug-over soil, eucalyptus).
