Spirit NOTES

Bottle limited to 2 per member

We found an extremely elegant and fresh nose full of sunflower seeds, trail mix, turmeric, sooty chimneys, caramel wafers, tamarind, white asparagus, hawthorne and chopped parsley. There was even a lightly saline edge of capers and salted peanuts. Some sour cherries, unsweetened whipped cream and gooseberry fool kept the acidity lively and pronounced. With water we got watermelon sweets, white chocolate, hessian, wild strawberries, rising dough and granny smith apples. The mouth was sweeter than the nose suggested. Fruit chutneys, candy floss, pink wafer biscuits, sweetened cereals and yellow herbal liqueurs. With reduction we noted lychee, sweet pear cordial, pineapple sorbet, coconut cream and mango yoghurt. A generous and easy fruitiness.
