    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Deep balsamic glow

    The Panel were in awe of the deep colour of this sherry
    matured marvel. The legs clung to the side of the glass like treacle. On the
    nose there was a strong Pedro Ximenez influence, with notes of prunes, raisins,
    soy sauce, coffee and dried cranberries. The first sip was hugely sweet and
    viscous. Pedro enjoyed candy floss and Karintō dusted in brown sugar. Water
    lightens the nose with a hint of rosewater, but the richness remains in the
    palate in the form of blackberry wine, treacle toffee and a slighty savoury
    edge (gravy in a roasting pan).
