The nose had us imagining a smiling woman on a new rocking chair on a porch surveying the prairie grasslands – youngsters gathered round tempted by the apple pie, marshmallows, toffee and rainbow drops on the table. The palate had a lovely mouth burst of sweet and citric flavours – Haribo sour apple rings, lemon sorbet, cherry Bakewell and that apple pie had a hint of cinnamon. On the reduced nose the prairie had blossomed after rain into a flower meadow (with lemon balm) and an orchard (apples, pears, stone fruits and blackcurrants). The palate was finely balanced, with summery flowers and fruits.
DRINKING TIP: A summer-time dram – maybe after cutting the grass – especially if your lawn is the size of a prairie.
