Nose
Very herbal and raw with an almost marc-like youthful intensity. Hints of decomposing rose petals, oat biscuits and with time some sweetening honey.
Palate
Youthful and herbal with mulched rose petals, dark rye flakes, green wood and hints of treacle and rye spice.
Finish
Intense, mouth-watering and very herbal with a touch of balsamic treacle and lingering marc-like notes.
Comment
Young and entertaining but it could have done with more oak character to round off the edges.

Nose
A big hit of oak, lots and lots of spice and sourdough bread. Some slight burnt toast notes and wood chippings after rainfall. Lots of nutmeg too.
Palate
The drying notes of nutmeg continue on the palate, with an earthy, autumnal note and lots of spices. There is also old leather boots and crusty brown bread.
Finish
Very dry, with more nutmeg and now some cinnamon as well.
Comment
The spices and dryness needed a little more balance.
