Please limit one bottle per member

A swooshed blade through tall grass! Then cereals galore: buttery; crispy; zingy; some leafy dampness underneath that suggests pipe tobacco and earthy leaf mulch. There’s fruit as well with lemon rinds, green apple, apricot, melon and pineapple syrups. Many tertiary complexities such as sooty oatmeal, an inky old writing desk, linseed and mineral oils. Water brings out geranium perfume, damp soil, a tomato vine and hibiscus. The palate arrives like a veil of grist scented silk. All flapjack, apricot marmalade, honey infused porridge, malt loaf, toasted seeds and milk bottle sweeties. A sublime softness envelops you. Reduction brings a lick of lanolin, some hardwood spices, a more robust, gravely minerality and a textual quality akin to waxes and shoe polish. A the finish is long, crisp and drying with wonderfully nervous cereal and fruit ballet.
