Notes

The nose opened with tangy white fruits, acid drops, tart grapefruit and concentrated juniper heat. Nettles, lemongrass, gooseberry juice and wild garlic were all noted. With water it became superbly aromatic. Lots of fresh herbs, menthol tones and a kiss of medicine. Evolved towards embrocations, eucalyptus drops, vapour rubs, exotic spice markets and green olives in lemon water. The neat palate opened with citrus jellies, under ripe orchard fruits and cider apple. The kiss of green acidity with flinty minerals, blood orange, Herbes de Provence and orange Curaçao. Reduction brought a nice, lean bitterness with yellow flowers, warming winter spices, bay leaf and bouquet garni
