Brazilian beach hammock sundowner
Refill ex-bourbon barrel
1 of 226 bottles
The nose was fresh as a scrubbed-up cherub – we were transported to a summer picnic– cut grass, lush green foliage, green apples and lemons, Vinho Verde, lilac blossoms and vanilla fudge. The palate had fabulous tongue-tingling zestiness – cart-loads of summer fruits – peach, nectarine, cherry, Pimm’s Cup and lemony chamomile tea on the lawn – complicated by sweet malty notes, cinnamon and eucalyptus. The reduced nose continued with floral and fruity perfumes – lemonade, ginger beer and mint tea by the lakeside – or a sundowner Caipirinha on a Brazilian beach hammock. The palate now found pineapple, sweet chilli, marzipan and a satsuma citric tang.
