A fresh, youthful nose – we imagined children scampering around a springtime meadow with a picnic – daisy chains, sherbet lemons, Refreshers, mint crumbles, green apples, Madeira cake, rhubarb crumble and custard – all nicely anchored by hints of almonds, dunnage, pine and white pepper. The palate was a good cop, bad cop routine – sweet up front, with blossom honey and vanilla custard slice – then a spice wallop of stem ginger, liquorice root and black tea (including the wooden tea-chest). With water, the nose seemed drier (dried grass, cinnamon, leather, walnuts and wood), while the palate acquired more fruit – rhubarb rock, Clementine, pear, pineapple and mango.
