An abundance of grown-up and complex aromas. Herbs d’Provence, freshly cut grass, dandelion, carnations and salted butter beckoned our inquisitive natures to pursue it further. We were rewarded with lemon balm, twiglets, honey on crispy rye bread, banana skin and vanilla custard with the subtle complexity of a dry martini. Combining with the lovely waxy texture of lemon skins we discovered pink grapefruit pith, liquorice stick and fresh nettles. The warming finish was dry and long lasting with grippy tannins from white grape skins and a clean, woody aftertaste that continued for some time.

DRINKING TIP: Drink whilst pondering on a complex problem.
