Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Very herbal and a little meaty, reminiscent of grilled pork chop and parsley. White pepper spice and the tartness of gooseberry jam, slightly earthy too – more damp rocks, mineral edges rather than earthy. A little lime peel too.
Palate: That herbal edge leads, chamomile and oak aged Chardonnay. Then the layers of fruit appear – green apples, pears and raspberries. Then the spices kick in.
Finish: Clean and crisp like a decent white wine, slowly the spices build.
Comment: A perfect balance between spicy and refreshing.
Taster   Sam Coyne
Nose: Vanilla ice-cream, with strawberry syrup. There's the faintest hint of muddy cross-country kits. Damp grass and smoke.
Palate: Little more caramel than was expected on the nose. Opens up to a pear and apple compote.
Finish: A warming spice – merely a prickle, before a touch of sweetness.
Comment: Lots going on – all of it good. This is well balanced and one to show off to your friends.
