Tasting Notes

Nose

Tangy, ethereal. A full basket of orchard fruit. Pear poached in vanilla. Distant almond notes.

Palate

Sweet and fruity (mango, pear). Quite oily. Velvety mouthfeel. Becomes spicy (white pepper).

Finish

Leafy, dry but lingering. Finishes with walnut peel bitterness.

Comment

Surprisingly vibrant for its age. There is a gap between the sharp nose and soothingly smooth palate. Water reconciles both. Would go well with a pear and almond pie.
