Superlicious sweet notes of peach, ripe apple and juicy pears sprinkled with icing sugar and topped with buttercream. The aromas of delicate cherry and apple blossom blended with freshly baked biscuits and warm balsa wood. The panel found the palate zingy with lemon zest, then tinned pears in syrup laced with chilli flakes and a dusting of cinnamon. Water opened up fresh apple and custard, lime basil and mandarin candle, mirabelle plum and wild flowers. Fresh pencil shavings and dusty chalk added depth with clean grapefruit giving in to fizzy sherbet and rich dark chocolate for a pleasing dry finish.
