Tasting notes
Taster   Mark Newton
Nose: Striking mix of bright cherries and strawberries, with diesel dirtiness. Chinese plum sauce. Damson jam and chocolate. Whipped cream. Dried sultanas, dates and cranberries.
Palate: Dried sour cherries, cranberries, redcurrants, raspberries and blackberries. Cloves. Under that oily, earthy, dirty bass notes, musty, which balances the sweetness effectively.
Finish: Medium length, chewy, fruity, enduring heat from the wood.
Comment: Not afraid to show attitude. Fantastic to share with friends.
Taster   Laura Foster
Nose: Simply red – crunchy fruits (cranberry and redcurrants) and raspberry jelly. A floral streak of violets and a touch of thyme.
Palate: Velvety, dry and nutty – particularly macadamia nuts – with some dark chilli chocolate. Water brings out dried red fruit and chocolate caramel drops.
Finish: Hazelnuts and macadamia butter doused in crème pâtissière. This drifted off quicker than most.
Comment: Easy-going, pleasant to drink but not particularly memorable.
