    Soooo pale, pale pale hay
    • Nose
      84 84
      Freshly overturned earth and iodine with a background of thyme. After water, very vinous with an herbal almost minty character
    • Taste
      84 84
      Tinge on the tongue giving away nutty notes and sweet custard going away to citrus. After water quite smooth and sweet mouthfeel, a tad buttery, clearly going away on sherry
    • Finish
      86 86
      Quite a strong finish on vanilla coming and going smoothly on berries - leaving the mouth dry

    SMWS Tasting Notes: A light Pinot grigio colour and a delicate aroma greeted The Panel. Slightly unripe apples, pears and apricots as well as vanilla, cut grass and crisp flatbread with honey, thyme and sea salt. On the palate; smooth like an almond milk cappuccino with the sugar blow-torched, served with a savoury salty ‘pretzel-croissant’ (shaped like a croissant but bathed in the golden brown glaze of a pretzel and sprinkled with sesame seeds). When we added some water the nose turned into a light and bright Manzanilla sherry served with olives and bread accompanied by an olive oil and balsamic dip.
