Tasting notes
Taster   Bethany Whymark
Nose: Vanilla buttercream on a lemon sponge cake. Elderflower cordial. Light blossom honey and cream cheese. Shortbread, and apple slices cooked in foaming butter.
Palate: Light-medium bodied. Blossom honey on white toast. Tinned pears in syrup with fluffy Chantilly cream. More syrupy elderflower cordial.
Finish: Medium, on thin, crisp butter biscuits and chamomile tea.
Comment: An undemanding, balanced blend that would make a cracking springtime highball.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Grape juice, elderflower, peach candy, and dried pineapple. Crème brûlée, vanilla sponge cake and ripe kiwi. Subtle brown sugar and faint cardamom.
Palate: Medium-full bodied. Poached apples, pears and plums. Red grape juice, fresh blackberry, fresh apricot and honeydew melon. Orange wine gums, subtle waxiness.
Finish: Long, lingering on the juicy orange gummy candy notes.
Comment: Immensely juicy, chewy, and fruity. Quite simple, but delicious!
