Nose
Bright tropical fruits of physalis and melon give way to funky fruit – just-baking banana bread. Paving slabs after an April shower, with spring blossom drifting down from the trees.
Palate
Satin-like and chewy, before becoming drying, spicy and tannic. Sour orange and lager give way to sawdust and black pepper that concentrates on the tip of the tongue.
Finish
Szechuan pepper tingles from the lips to the roof of the mouth, leaving drying banana.
Comment
Fabulous fruit bumped this up the charts.

Oh hello tinned fruit salad, straight back to childhood, with Tip Top cream and honey. Carrot cake mixture. Almost a cider press note too.
Palate
Big and well defined, all that fruit hits you first then it gives way to a dry wood note, a little tobacco too. Those candied cherries, almost sweet and sour at the same time.
Finish
Hold for a little with those spices then slips away leaving toffee pennies.
Comment
One for the end of the summer, a herald of autumn.
