Notes

The nose encompasses attractive, fresh, floral and herbal notes, perfumed sweets, blossom honey and fruitful indulgences (peach, pear, pineapple, tinned mandarins). The palate has a sweet core of chocolate-coated nuts and raisins, toffee, jammy croissants and breakfast cereals, but we also found tannic leather, horse harnesses, Himalayan rock salt and spices. With water, the nose combines sea-spray with vanilla ice-cream cones – summer-time at the beach perhaps? The reduced palate was easier and juicier, but still a bit of an enigmatic mêlée – dried papaya, cherry chocolate and salted caramel, with pleasant mouth-nipping spice and light smoke, oak and tobacco on the finish.
