Notes

We loved the nose – calling it ‘special’ and ‘magical’ – exotic fruits (juicy pineapple, mango, melon, dried cherries) rubbed shoulders with brandy snaps and chocolate-drizzled Pavlova – plus cigar boxes and pipe racks. The neat palate had more attack – tongue-tingling leather, tobacco and spice – but dark chocolate, manuka honey and dried pineapple and papaya made it easy to forgive. The reduced nose continued the dream – tropical trail mix, mejool dates and bougainvillea by a holiday hotel pool. The palate, with just a touch of water, was totally rehabilitated – cherries in chocolate, mango, sugary coffee dregs, polished wood and spices – rather heavenly, actually.
