Treacle gold in colour with great beading. An immediate nose of boiled sweets, honey, Opal Fruits, and gooseberries. These become more minty, even garden peas in mint. To taste, coconut sweet with a slight acidity and soft chocolate in the finish. With a little water, the nose becomes more flinty, almost Chablis-like. Then, elderflower with Laura Ashley fabric drying in a summer breeze! Tasted reduced, it is sweet to start, slightly drying with plenty of minerals on the finish. A lovely, creamy texture, a little caramel and just a hint of smoke carry the whole experience into a medium to long finish.
