The panel fancied a scene straight from Tess of the D'urbervilles, with characters dressed in linen fob caps drinking elderflower water and cider. Delicate pollen mingled with light blossom honey and white pepper. A savoury spread of salted limes, olives in brine, white wine vinegar, before sweeter white chocolate ganache with fresh lime peel and gooseberry. The texture was mouthwatering and salving with lemon meringue and a short finish. Water revealed breezy warm stubble and wicker basket with some dusty cereal. More zesty sherbet, pineapple and dried apple rings with a sprightly finish of pepper. Fragile and gorgeous.

DRINKING TIP: Careful with the water
