Description

Our noses caught very attractive sweet and perfumed intimations – parma violets, rose creams and tinned fruit salad in syrup (including glacé cherries) – also hints of macaroons and chocolate Brazils. The palate had a good viscous mouth-feel and sweet juicy flavours of jam donuts, custard, satsumas and mandarins. The reduced nose was even more perfumed than before – elderflower, grape, gooseberry and lychee – not unlike a Gewürztraminer – out of the ordinary, but we welcomed that. The palate, with its orange jelly, Starburst, pineapple slices and brown sugar inspired one panellist to advise – ‘throw away the cork!’
