We encountered a curious nose, full of cherries and chocolate, liquorice and lemon, peanuts, pistachios and wasabi peas. The palate was sweet and intensely flavoured – buttery Danish biscuits, toffee, crème brulée and cinnamon toast, then a warming, mouth-drying finish of ginger, chilli, over-done plum pie and oak. The reduced nose offered barley sugars and apricot flan, nougat, trail mix with hazelnuts and dried coconut and sanded wood on a workbench. The reduced palate slowly surrendered its sapid secrets, which included apple crumble, caramel log and dark chocolate Bounty bars, with an after-taste of pepper and ginger in a dentist’s clinic.
