Notes

Aromas of old, well preserved, wood mingling with varnish, oil, wax and paint made us feel that we had entered a workshop where antique furniture was being restored. On the palate very substantial and rewarding like a Christmas pudding with traditional brandy butter and homemade spiced kumquat marmalade. After dilution the scent of the oily orange peel zest was soon followed by a banana spring roll with butterscotch sauce and on the palate now luscious velvety smooth and sweet like a clafoutis, a classic French dessert of baked custardy pancake made with rum-soaked dried apricots, figs and raisins served with whipped cream.
