    Gorgeous peat on the nose and smooth on the palate. Sweetness wrapping the taste buds on the tongue, like a soft silky foulard. Absolutely fabulous

    Notes from the SMWS website: https://www.smws.com/peat-fire-flame

    The scent of seafood paired with sweet, spicy and fruity aromas make this a real experience; a lobster mango salad with Thai crab cakes and a sweet chilli sauce seasoned with coriander, salt and black pepper. With this we serve a Pouilly-Fumé dry white wine from the Loire; stony minerals and lemon flavours balanced by a smoky floral fruitiness. With a few drops of water, we enjoy our salad and wine sitting outside a cottage by the sea and as the full moon lights up the night sky we share stories and songs by the smouldering peat fire.

    Initial price (August 2018): 139,00 GBP
