Colour: Ice wine
Flavour profile: Spicy & sweet
We were instantaneously transported on a flying carpet miraculously into a magical story of ‘One Thousand and One Nights’. The air was filled with elegant, smooth, silky, sophisticated aromas; burning frankincense, hot sand and ‘wine like the wind is sweet’. On the palate we were in an oasis enjoying a desert sunset whilst eating a lamb tagine prepared with ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, coriander, flaked almonds and honey. A drop of water and the sweetness from the honey was released in a baklava with almonds, pistachios and walnuts and the flavour was now white chocolate mints with a soft, sweet chilli peppery heat.
