    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Varnished pine

    Flavour Profile: Young & spritely

    The nose – zingy, effervescent and intriguing – had melon,
    grape and raspberry prosecco, plus occasional touches of polished wood. The
    palate offered lively bramble, blackcurrant and salted pineapple, then toffee
    apple, cinnamon Danish and Walnut Whip sweetness, all finely balanced by cask-derived
    flavours of liquorice, nutmeg and clove. The reduced nose combined runny honey
    and chocolate mint cracknel with toasted coconut and a jenga tower of fresh
    staves. Eminently drinkable, the palate now gave us lip-smacking ice-lolly and
    raisiny sweetness over a pleasantly tingling, spicy, oaky under-structure. A
    lively, clean, spicy fruit symphony.

    Drinking Tip: A summery, uplifting dram.
