Martine Nouet

Nose
Grassy and floral. Meadow flowers. Bursting with spices. Gently toasted hazelnuts. Greengage jam. Opening up custardy notes.
Palate
Sweet and elegant. Rich creamy scrumptious flavours. Like a liquid bakewell tart.
Finish
Lingering, nutty and fruity. So satisfying.
Comment
The wine finish brings in sweetness and fruitiness but without masking the delicate grassiness and lightness of the Lowland style. A real cracker, perfect for a wake up call.

Ian Wisniewski

Nose
Elegantly poised, dried fruit reclining on a bed of caramel sauce and butterscotch, with roasted almonds and spiciness mid-way.
Palate
Smooth, velvety texture with an integrated package of crème brûlée and chocolate sweetness, fruit trifle, hints of espresso, nutmeg and butterscotch.
Finish
Fruity chocolate with dry spicy oak.
Comment
A dram that combines disciplined flavours with delightful variations on a theme.
