Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Sweetness up front with a little citrus zip to it. Strawberries and balsamic vinegar. Reduced red fruits, compote-like, but there is a chewy wine gum and jelly note too.
Palate: Those sweet wine gums hit first, the sugar-powdered jelly sweet too. The sweetness slowly fades, making room for orchard fruits and some rich vanilla custard.
Finish: Slowly fades with sweetness and a little fruity red wine edge.
Comment: A soft and gentle drop that has a real winey quality to it, perhaps one for the cheese course?
Taster   Becky Paskin
Nose: It starts out a bit rubbery, but settles into raspberry jam, black pepper and wholemeal toast with a smidge of Turkish delight.
Palate: More of that delicate, rosewater-perfumed Turkish Delight though that rubbery grip is back making things a tad bitter. More black pepper, orange zest and some thick strawberry purée with green apple skins surrounding.
Finish: The after-taste of blowing up balloons spritzed with a little light rose perfume.
Comment: Delicate and floral with a hint of spice there too.
