    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Faded copper bracelet
    Flavour Profile: Juicy, oak & vanilla

    The nose stimulated us with tons of Haribos (Dolly Mixtures
    for older generations), vanilla slices, pineapple humps and cup cakes –
    eventually more complex – jasmine tea, cigar boxes, walnut oil and flat-pack
    furniture. The neat palate had plentiful sweetness (peach juice, white
    chocolate, tinned pineapple, syrupy gulab jamun) – but never sickly, thanks to
    chilli heat and tobacco and grapefruit bitterness. The nose developed
    attractive perfumes with water (peach, jasmine, lily of the valley, lemon cup
    cakes). The reduced palate was ‘satisfying’ and ‘enjoyable’ – sweetly citric,
    with caramelized apple, lemon drizzle cake and ice cream, plus ginger, pepper,
    mint and menthol to finish.

    Drinking Tip: A great aperitif – to get the juices flowing
