Notes

The nose brings sweet grass, spring flowers, lemon and oozingly juicy pineapple; leather arrives later (park bench, nice lady, new handbag). The unreduced palate has substantial mouth impact – tiny sips rather than gulps are recommended – barley sweetness (breakfast cereal with puffed wheat and honey), chocolate limes and banana split with toffee sauce. Some wood lies underneath – but it’s sweet, like chewing on ice-lolly sticks. The reduced nose takes you to cake-land – vanilla custard slice, strawberry tarts and pineapple humps (a Scottish delicacy, not some weird perversion). The palate is now juicy and easy – balancing sweetness and zingy fruit, like lime marmalade.
