Description

On the nose neat associations of looking at an ‘old master’ still life painting of a fruit bowl and claret jug. The bowl is laden with apples, pears, grapes, bananas, plums and on the side half an orange. The taste neat was a deep rich red wine sauce with dried cranberries and walnuts as well as spiced cherries in grappa liquor. With water a few tropical fruits were added to the ‘fruit bowl’, mainly papaya, pineapple and mango and now very moreish on the palate, sticky malt loaf with blackcurrant jam and gingerbread spice cake with caramel apple sauce.

DRINKING TIP: At a vernissage
