Colour - Deep Golden Bronze Body
Opens beautifully on peat smoke and coastal wild flowers; Sea pinks, purple Heather, wild Lilies and Riverbank Marigolds all held beautifully in a cradle of French oak. Then the sweet crispiness of the malted barley emerges and is accompanied by lighter notes of ripe plump grapes which slipstream in on a coastal marine overture of blowing sand and crushed sea shells. Add a splash of water and it changes in a heartbeat to notes and flavours off Turkish delight all cocooned in a cradle of oak, smoke and sea spray. At once graceful and brawny, it’s mind boggling as the wine influence tries valiantly to tame the west coast Islander born of the sea with its smoky character. After withstanding the storm the succulent sweetness of the Grand Cru wine emerges beautifully like a sunrise after the storm bringing a sophistication and serenity to the senses. Its beauty and the beast and there are no losers; The finish is long and lingering with the palate swinging into Louie Armstrongs ‘What a wonderful world” - With this spirit in your hand it sure is.
One of my top creations for sure!
