Spirit NOTES

This bottle is limited to 2 per member

A fruity and fragrant carnival invited mango, melon and grapefruit alongside gooseberries and apple pie for a night of dancing on cinnamon, Brazils and vanilla sponge cake. The palate embraced us with chilli heat that said "I yi yi yi yi, I like you very much!" before honey and hard toffee stole a dance to the tune of lemons, tart plums and oaky tannins. With a quick dash of agua we found ourselves in a cascade of stone fruits, green apples and juniper berries while linseed combined with milk chocolate and bread dough. The chewy palate now focussed on quince, cloves and fennel as we cha cha chad off into the citrus scented night.
