Tasting Notes

Nose

It’s a shy one, mostly nutty, like soaked cashews, with light vanilla sponge cake and just a hint of fruitiness in dried apricots, peach skin and sultanas.

Palate

This is unexpectedly juicy, bursting with fresh stone fruit. There are peaches, apricots, plums, some lemon zest, vanilla-accented icing sugar, and mandarin segments, but oak spice prevents it from becoming sickly.

Finish

It’s still going, though drying.

Comment

Such a fresh, vibrant palate here that you almost don’t want to swallow.
