Notes

We found the neat nose on this one to be abundant with confectionary sweetness. Notes suggestive of milk bottle sweets, mini milk ice lollies and sherbet flying saucers were all jotted down. Also honeyed oatmeal, pineapple tarts, vanilla white chocolate and pollen-heavy white flowers. A splash of water unveiled cocoa, white tea, digestive biscuits, sandalwood, gorse flower and youthful sauternes drizzled over a sponge cake. On the neat palate we noted yellow flowers, plums, light waxy notes, peppery warmth, brioche and dried apple rings. Water brought mango and guava in a fruit salad, soft tobacco notes, limeade, lemon barley water and a kiss of nettle tea.
