SMWS Tasting Notes
Colour: Dried papaya
Flavour: Sweet, fruity & mellow
Early nose suggestions of balsa models, linseed and elastoplasts turned more tropical (grapefruit, cherry, pineapple, orange blossom, muscovado, crystallised ginger, rose petals, hubba-bubba gum). The palate had an amusing, mouth-tickling effect like tiny leprechauns River-dancing on our tongues; sherbet, Monstera, mango, rhubarb and blackcurrant jam on toast – a sunny, honeyed, Sunday afternoon feel. The reduced nose found traces of mint, lemon balm, apple tart and angelica, but still sweet (toffee, trifle). The palate was sweetly perfumed – sherbet straws, Rainbow drops and black jack chews with hints of peach sorbet and fine leather – tasty and decidedly drinkable.
Drinking tip: Frivolous and frothy enough for a carnival, party mood – or just a lazy Sunday dram.
