Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Luscious fruitiness. Apricot jam, trifle, marzipan, almond and pear tart. A winey note hovering over that temptating bakery selection. Orange blossom.
Palate: Malty and fruity. Lightbodied. Raisins, scones. Cherry jam. Red apple. Muscat grape.
Finish: Soothing, fruity. Rather short.
Comment: A real finesse, some thinness too. But Twiggy was a popular model in her time, wasn't she?
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Slightly indistinct without water. Soft, gentle and nutty.
Palate: Delivers much more than on the distant nose. Quite a thick feel balanced by fragrant top notes, balanced oak and a Nutella like crispness. Balanced oak.
Finish: Dark chocolate.
Comment: Fair balance.
