The nose had yellow fruits – pineapple humps, banana syllabub, lemon puffs, beeswax and maple syrup on pancakes. The palate enjoyed a banana split with chocolate sprinkles, sherbet lemons and coconut snowball cakes; the slightly drying finish found hints of soft leather, linseed oil and chewed pencil ends. With water, the nose veered to the citric side – lemon meringue pie, lemon balm on sugar-dusted strawberries, spring meadows, sunlight on straw and yellow roses. On the palate now, we discovered custard Danish pastries and malt loaf, lemon and passion fruit sorbet, Earl Grey tea and sherbet lemons, with cinnamon and oak on the finish.
