    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Summer days among the fields of barley

    Flavour profile: Juicy, oak & vanilla

    The initial aroma we got was fairly chemical reminding some
    of cleaning fluid and others of naphtha, but don’t give up as your perseverance
    shall be rewarded. The scents, appearing once given a little time in the glass,
    were toasted crumpets with peach jam, whipped coconut cream and exotic Chinese
    muscle rub. The taste was totally tropical with the mouth-watering fruitiness
    of mango, pineapple, guava and quince jelly using lemon scented geranium
    leaves. With water still seriously intense and substantial like a Jamaican
    dessert called Gulab jamun and accompanied by vanilla chai tea with rich
    chocolate and hazelnut clusters.

    Drinking tip: Invite plenty of friends and throw the cork
    away
