    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Flavour Profile: Juicy, Oak & Vanilla

    Colour: Golden Syrup

    The nose hinted at polished wood, paint and glue but was definitely dominated by expansive sweetness – spun sugar, donuts, honeycomb, crème brûlée, salted caramel, lychee syrup and millionaire’s shortbread. The palate similarly juxtaposed varnished wood, Riesling, wood spice and bitter leaf against banana fritters in syrup, toffee, caramel and puff candy. The reduced nose seemed sunny and yellow, with buttercups, pinewood, Aberdeen butteries, poppy seed muffins and Crunchie bars, but with Airfix paints, menthol cigarettes and rum notes to complicate it. The reduced palate was simple, but enjoyable – flavours of corn candies, Baklava and butterscotch with subtle shades of oak.

    Drinking tip: Could be an aperitif, especially for a summer’s picnic.
