Tasting Notes

Nose

Initially sweet red fruit—cherry, raisin, date and apricot syrup. Candied orange peel and lemon balm. Through the fruit comes chocolate, toasted oak and a briny note like salted honey. The boiled sweet notes of strawberry and orange are constant and the toasted oak gives depth to the nose.

Palate

After the luscious notes on the nose this is surprisingly light and elegant on the palate. The soft texture holds a depth of flavour, again dominated by sweet style fruit but the oak gives structure and balance. There is roasted coffee, apricot and toasted malty bread show the presence and depth in the oak.

Finish

Chocolate, a hint of spicy clove then rose petal come through as the fruit fades. Last is the wonderful note of toasted oak, gentle yet firm on the palate.
