    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Sexy redhead
    Flavour: Spicy & sweet

    The nose fascinated us with a mix of citrus (lemon bonbons, strawberry Millions, orange fondant and raspberry) sweet treats (baklava, meringue, crème brülée) and something enticingly savoury and lightly smoky. The palate was big, tasty and interesting – palo cortado sherry, vanilla, star anise, and crème caramel flavours swirling around – then perfume, jasmine tea, liquorice and sugar-coated fennel seeds arrived. The reduced nose elicited multitudinous descriptors, including zabaglione, toasted coconut, cinnamon, eucalyptus and ‘sticking your head in a bourbon cask’. The palate now suggested blackcurrant, fresh fig, salted caramel and citrus – self-assured, buxom and rewarding perfumed sweetness.

    Drinking tip: A bit of a day-dreamer’s dram – taste this and enter fantasy land.
