Tasting Notes

The immediate nose gave dry grass and hessian – then honey cake, fudge and popping candy sweetness arrived, slowly overtaken by fruity notes (raspberry ripple, blackcurrant, pears). The palate had us arguing about sweet dessert wine, cream soda ice cream floats, raspberry iced lollies, hot cross buns and poached pear with clove – was it sweeter or spicier? But with a dram like this we couldn’t fall out. Adding water allowed our noses to discover lemon, honeysuckle and sugared almonds. It also synthesised the sweet and spicy notes on the palate into liquorice allsorts, balsamic strawberries, wine gums and sultanas in a curry.
