Full, yellow gold. Fine beading.
Dry and savoury, with ripe fruits on a herbal and slightly spicy base; fruit boxes packed with red apples, a dusty malt barn, hessian sacks and walnuts, nut brittle toffee. Subtly aromatic, with mature oaky vanilla, dark chocolate, dry sawdust and polish. Later, sweet hints of melon.
First, cool and tangy, smooth and with a sweeter taste than expected; a sugary fruit compote. Soon drying, powerful and mint-clean, with a charred bitterness; flinty and toasty, growing increasingly appetising, with dark chocolate and grape skins, then savoury.
Long, with considerable spice; herbal, with drying cedar and clove, and black tea notes. An appealing charred and savoury note.
