Nose
Lightly nutty with a little liquorice, varnish and oiliness that shifts to light leather. Sweet again with added fruitiness.
Palate
Sweet (!) and liquorous. Quite thick feel with blueberry syrup. Ripe and scented and almost liqueur like.
Finish
Weighty and full. Jam.
Comment
Soft and easy –and sweet –but all in all a little bland.

Nose
Lemon and lime starburst, a garden orchard after summer rain, fresh and cleansing.
Palate
The expected sweetness is there initially but then it flip-flops and a savoury and peppery wave arrives to add to the fruit. Red liquorice is in the mix too, and there's a dying embers/charcoal undertow.
Finish
Prickly and quite long.
Comment
Too busy for some, lots and lots going on, but somehow it all comes together.
