Tasting notes
Taster   Christopher Coates
Nose: Delicately herbal, almost hoppy. Stewed fruits and Skolebrød – custard, cardamom and sweet pastry. Tarragon and pink grapefruit, sweet cereal notes and a little maple syrup.
Palate: Intensely aromatic and fresh. The pink grapefruit character is remarkable, joined by zesty orange and lemon notes. Underneath all that citrus, pie crust and bran flakes, backed by a spoon of rich and sweet blossom honey.
Finish: Medium length, packed full of citrus. Remarkably refreshing.
Comment: I’ll be ordering a bottle of this!
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Pencil shavings and fresh oak. There’s light vanilla and baked oranges coated in chocolate, zesty and sweet. Yorkshire tea cake with a little flinty, chalky cheese.
Palate: Big sweetness which is then tempered by that oak tannin spice. Lovely tannin notes.
Finish: Clean, sweet and dries slowly leaving those spices.
Comment: A decent drop, one I would certainly earmark for dessert with its multiple layers of sweetness.
