Tasting Notes from the Producer
Aromas (with water) Noticing the nose opening out… it’s fresh as a breeze with subtle herbs and summer fruits.
Aromas (without water) … the nose is brimming with luscious red berries and hints of ginger and cinnamon, complemented by a subtle sense of smoke.
Palate (with water) Peppery with a sweet toffee note followed by a slight saltiness and a subtle smoky edge.
Palate (without water) The initial peppery palate gives way to a ripe fruit bowl of flavours… strawberries, raspberries, orange zest… and you can detect gorgeous milk chocolate drops, too.
