Description

The nose was an autumnal fusion of leaf mulch and fresh mushrooms with salted toffee and sweetly chewy butterscotch. Aromas found equilibrium between the strong herbal notes of dried rosemary and the confected mishmash of pink marshmallows and fudge shrouded in a cloak of butter pastry. The palate stimulated the senses with the sweet and spicy tingle of peppadew peppers with a sprinkling of brown sugar and warming ground turmeric. A dash of water exposed a fruitier affair as dried cranberries and damsons moved towards lychee jam and the delightfully oily sophistication of aged riesling. Oils turned towards green olives and toasted sunflower seeds whilst the finish suggested the presence of banana skin and well-weathered wood.
