Dave Broom

Nose
Clean and fragrant with a suppleness to it. Slightly reminiscent of a good tequila: ripe pear, agave syrup, light peppery spice, lime. An extra sweetness with water and a hint of cream. Daikon radish.
Palate
Iced biscuits and fondant cream with lemon and sugared flowers. Intense and fragrant.
Finish
Drying, then the agave character reappears.
Comment
Clean and well made with a few of the unformed notes of youth. Evidence of great potential.

Rob Allanson

Nose
Fresh fruit with big cereal notes. Quite sweet with sharp red fruits, something green, peppers, young chardonnay.
Palate
Apples, soft ground spices and those cereal notes again.
Finish
Warming but short.
Comment
Very gentle despite its high alcohol.
