SMWS Tasting Notes

Colour: Straw

Flavour profile: Spicy & sweet

Picture a thatched cottage nestling among fields filled with dusty hay bales after a brief shower of summer rain. Step through a doorway circled by nasturtiums and geraniums and be drawn to the inviting aromas of baking: hot scones, almond tart, cinnamon pastries and rich Battenberg cake. Nibble on white chocolate studded with white peppercorns, yellow jelly babies and juicy lychees in syrup. Our buxom hostess sets blowsy red roses on the table now set with rhubarb and apple pie with vanilla custard, buttered croissants with creamy coffee. She folds palmolive scented towels to air on the Aga. Idyllic!

Drinking tip: When feeling warm and fluffy
