There’s a peach melba, maple syrup and foamy shrimp sweetness to the nose but it is predominantly floral in a concentrated but quite natural way – shrubberies, gorse flowers, violets and lilies. The palate is eye-poppingly intense, mouth-drawing, zingy and sharp with lemon shortbread, tangy lime sorbet, grapefruit segments and ginger. The reduced nose is just a delight – hints of eucalyptus, delicate sweetness (Werthers*, chocolate ice-cream) and rose bud tea – like flowers and a box of chocolates on a first date. The palate now boasts tropical fruits (mango, papaya and dragon fruit), sherbet straws and parma violets – we thought it just great! (*Werther’s Original – caramel candies, originally from Germany)
