Notes

The nose suggested Danish pastries, rhubarb rock and coffee ice-cream; kiwi, star-fruit and gooseberry fool, with hints of pine resin and leather tobacco pouches. The palate was chewy and substantial with some unexpected heat – marzipan sweetness led to moist ginger cake, followed by a spicy, dry (almost Manzanilla-like) finish. The reduced nose seemed sweeter, fruitier and juicier – quality wine gums and jellied fruits, with some aromatic wood (wooden tobacco box, orange boxes). The reduced palate was fresh and sweet, reminding us of plum sorbet, piña colada and ‘Blue Caribbean’ (sunset happy hour!) – with wood and tobacco notes providing tongue-haunting after-tingles.
