Nose
?Very unusual on the first nosing - artichoke hearts, broad beans, nettles and fresh gooseberries. Very vegetative indeed.
Palate
?The gooseberries continue to the palate, with a salty note, some hidden creaminess and tart lemon juice.
Finish
?The finish develops more of a creaminess alongside some woody spice –a touch of liquorice root and oak.
Comment
?Not unpleasant, but not without fault either. An enigma this one.

Rob Allanson

78
Nose
?At first asparagus, damp leaf mulch, boiled broccoli, not sulphuric but very vegetal focussed. Then a little salted caramel, coffee grinds and sharp green fruits.
Palate
?That salted caramel note comes through, green fruits, apple skins, unripe tomatoes, buttercream and steamed milk.
Finish
?Some spice with more buttercream and ginger.
Comment
?The nose is a little off putting at first, but don't dismiss this, it has depth.
