Notes

The nose was smile-inducing, with peaches, apples and pears (some of them wrapped in pastry), honeycomb, creamy rusks and a faint but heady whiff of lily. The palate also displayed some of that sweet creaminess in the shape of carnation milk in tea, cinder toffee and vanilla fudge – but it also had a fresh, floral aspect (pineapple, grape skins). The reduced nose uncovered honeysuckle and herbs, emulsion paint and wax, brandy snaps and cinnamon swirls. The palate was still deliciously sweet – glacé cherries, pineapple cubes and banana split, but the finish discovered slightly dry spices from the baking cupboard, especially ginger.
