    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Flavour Profile: Spicy & Sweet

    Colour: Primrose gold

    The bright, clean nose led us through groves of soft, sweet citrus (lemon meringue pie, lemon and lime sorbet, pineapple ice-lolly) into a glade of flowers, herbs, fresh wood, tobacco, honey and vanilla. Adding water defined the herbs more clearly (mint, menthol, chewing gum); we also got paint, oak and candied ginger. The neat palate combined chalky sweetness with juicy fruits (pineapple, strawberry, mango, pear) – also hints of mint oil and menthol tobacco, but it simply grew fruitier with every sip. In reduction, lip-smackingly enjoyable honeyed fruit flavours, while yogurt-coated ginger and oak shavings cavorted artfully and playfully on our tongues.

    Drinking tip: After cavorting in a glade.
