Tasting notes
Taster   Phoebe Calver
Nose: This is taking me back to a trip to Seville, all warm oranges and citric zest. Freshly cut grass on a sunny day, a light vanilla sponge cake like angel slices. There’s also pear drops and a tang that reminds me a little of Ouzo.
Palate: A nice oily mouthfeel with aniseed warmth and more of that vanilla creaminess. There’s still grassiness and juicy slices of orange, with icing sugar on an orange sponge.
Finish: Vanilla icing and some warm white pepper spice.
Comment: This has me longing for a fresh and zingy summer picnic.
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Fresh and summery. Mown lawns and hay, vanilla sponge and delicate elderflower. Icing sugar and citrus oils, lemon and orange. Delicate oak sawdust.
Palate: Quite light. Well balanced and as fresh as the nose. Driven mostly by the vanilla and citrus notes, with the sweetness dipping into honeyed. Gentle tannin and delicate green apple.
Finish: Medium-short length. Ends with the sweet vanilla and green apple notes. Gentle tannins dry things out.
Comment: Approachable and quaffable.
