    SMWS Tasting Notes: Astonishing for its age - the nose had attractive chalky sweets (Refreshers, summer creams, sherbet straws), orange fondant chocolates and lemon bonbons. Then, enticing floral notes shyly peeping out from behind. The palate was zingy, effervescent and mouth-tingling - champagne, sherbet lemons, mango, coconut, tobacco and elderflower and ginger spritz. The reduced nose had sugared almonds, highly botanical gin and tonic and lemon pickers packing cardboard boxes in a sunny, dusty lemon grove. The palate - a satisfyingly sweet and tangy experience of lemon sorbet, flying saucers, popping candy, plum tart and gooseberry fool, with hints of cigar boxes and leather on the finish.
