Official Tasting Notes
Nose - Freshly-cut hay appears instantly, with an accompaniment of juniper berries lending an earthy sweetness. Elderflower drizzle cake and a juicy kiwi generously sweeten, while a flurry of crunchy autumn leaves contributes more rustic aromas.
Palate - Sweeter on the palate than on the nose, with a silky quality, akin to butterscotch sauce and muscovado syrup. Bitterness elbows in, in the form of grapefruit juice - but when held longer on the palate, this is replaced by the creamy succulence of lucuma fruit ice cream.
Finish - The earthy sweetness evident on the nose reappears and lingers – this time, it’s maple syrup drizzled on crispy granola. A warming tanginess rests on, with raw heather honey and yoghurt-covered cranberries.
