Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: Fresh fruit, pineapple, mango and papaya. Leads quickly into homemade vanilla cream/custard, French toast with a dusting of icing sugar.
Palate: Vanilla custard notes become toasted with time. Smooth, oily mouthfeel with chewy sultanas, strawberries, more of that cream and a hint of marzipan, gritty nuttiness giving it a kick that balances the sweet and smooth notes.
Finish: Rounds out with marzipan that lingers for just long enough.
Comment: Does enough with the time it has to leave a pleasant impression.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Intense orchard and tropical fruits. Peaches in syrup, cloudy apple juice, and ripe mango. Walnut and pistachio, with subtle cereal notes. Freshly baked white bread and butter. Slightly herbal, sage and menthol.
Palate: Those intense fruits are back, joined by delightful creaminess. Pear, white grape and apricot. A suggestion of strawberry. Fruit flan and custard, with a cup of black tea on the side.
Finish: Elegant and long, with plenty of those summer fruits.
Comment: The dessert served at a respectable garden party.
