    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Flavour Profile: Spicy & Sweet

    Colour: Pretty yellow gold

    The early nose is bright, fruity and attractive – chalky sweets, 1960’s lucky bag, pear and apple strudel (including pastry and sugar sprinkles) – then it develops wood shavings and herbal aspects (lemon balm, spearmint). The palate is lively, with citrus and passion fruit intensity dancing a tarantella on the tongue; sweetness of rhubarb rock, popping candy and flying saucers and hints of putty and glue. Still spritzy with water, the nose is sweeter and more perfumed – a confectioner’s full of sherbet straws and summer creams. The palate is vivacious but elegant – lots of pear (Williams mixed with prosecco) – leaving gentle perfumed tingles.

    Drinking tip: A-pear-atif. Takes water well.
