A molten copper breastplate shows ripe, yet savoury, figs, plums and orange citrus fruit with overtones of warm Demerara sugar and marshmallows gently toasting on a skewer of soft warm oak, sprinkled with the merest touch of saw dust. The mouth is invitingly soft and unctuous. The marshmallows open things up their sticky warmth being enveloped with ripe candied fruit, with some light sappiness joining the party towards the end, bringing a welcome party seven of structure to the rich mouth feel. As the music fades drying delicate tannins play on. From the Baco grape.
