Notes

An elegant opening with buttermilk, pollens. sandalwood, sweet floral notes, sunflower blossoms, rosewater, trampled ferns, mossy bark, light tobacco, notes, heather ale and fresh lemon peel. Water elevated the cereal aspects and adds dried grass, hay bales, river reeds, fresh figs in muesli, pizza dough, dried herbs and vase water in a greenhouse. The mouth is soft and tingly. Lots of sweet herbal extracts, children's medicines, grapefruit, caramel, lemon barley water, citrus marmalades, pink marshmallow and lighter autolytic notes of fermenting sourdough and tea biscuits. Reduction makes things grassier, more oily and brings notes of clay, juniper, cheeky notes of gin and tonic sorbet and a curious mix of ripe melon and wet dog fur (Border Collie to be precise). Further notes of red apple, star fruit and apricot jam towards the finish.
