Nose
Oak. Light toffee apple,dry grass. Good balance between sweet caramel,melted white chocolate and a chalky,almost fino-like quality.
Palate
Good concentration of wood oils, ratafia,baked apple.Opens into the centre with a slight resinous undertow. Good length but grippy.
Finish
Slightly firm.
Comment
A little cramped on the palate but has personality.
