Notes

The nose neat had the flinty chalky sweetness of opening a bag of Pontefract cakes followed by a cranberry-apple spritzer and a new leather smell. The taste, without water, came as a slight shock; mineralic dry heat – mouth-puckering and after all that, in the finish, chicken liver parfait with apple and saffron chutney. Takes a lot of water as we now cooked mustard-crusted pork chops with caramelised apple rings and on the palate we had a mixture of apple juice, yeast, orange, honey - reminding us of both a glass of Cornish mead wine or Jamaican ginger beer.
