Colour: Celtic amulet
Flavour profile: Sweet, fruity & mellow
The nose evoked old-fashioned lemonade and baked Alaska –
then an identikit image emerged of a suntan-lotioned lady in a Hawaiian grass
skirt, sipping champagne while hanging out the laundry. The palate started out
quite tropical and fruity – red Ribena ice lollies, raspberry sauce over
ice-cream and blue Slush Puppy, before shifting to pineapple cake, white wine
and bitter lemon. The reduced nose cheered us with apple strudel and pear flan
on a wooden board, served with Blooming Marvellous tea. The palate was nicey,
nicey, sweet and spicy – kiwi, green apple, citrus and Demerara with hints of
wood and eastern spice.
Drinking tip: Go a bit mad on laundry day – but with this
instead of champagne.
