Tasting notes
Taster   Lyndsey Gray
Nose: Victoria sponge served up with chamomile tea, praline pecans and poached pears. Hints of roasted chilli flakes and lemon curd on toasted rye bread add another layer.
Palate: Wallops of fresh ginger root, chilli flakes and cardamom seeds fill the palate and dominate. Elements of dehydrated citrus peel and then chocolate brioche buns slowly begin to develop.
Finish: Layers of fruit that are overrun with spices upon spices.
Comment: Soft and luscious and an entire spice rack.
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Honeysuckle, peonies and jasmine flower tea. Chardonnay, oak aged. Buttery biscuitness. Then ripe peaches, green plums and mixed apples.
Palate: That Chardonnay quality continues with buttery oak and malted milk biscuits. Milk chocolate and praline pieces, honeycomb sweetness. Sweet with Cola bottle sweets and caramel pieces.
Finish: A little citrus, then the oak unravels with black tea tannins and an earthy dryness.
Comment: Takes you on a twisting journey though French vineyards and the undergrowth.
