Nose: lemon tart, a hint of coffee, varnish, apple turnover.
Mouth: coconut yoghurt, custard, lukewarm, sweet and beautiful. Finish: superb coconut-y custard and lemon pie.
Nose – Obvious grain at first. Then fruit, a little austere but fresh and ripe. Gentle toffee, a cap from a cap gun, green apple and butter. It’s very gentle but quite reassuring. Flintier with water, old ice cubes – maybe cider ice lollies.
Body – Wood, cream and more apple (apple pie now). Lots of oil. More astringent with water.
Finish – Short but chocolatey, woods and some tannins later but the fruit is quickly spent.
