Tasting Notes

Nose

Gentle sherry, hints of coffee cake and tiramisu, wet walnuts and distant cherry pipe tobacco. Gets a little woolly and waxy, tweed bolts and wintergreen.

Palate

Grilled pineapple and chili – that great combo of sweetness and spice prickle. Sherry sweetness takes over with hedgerow fruits, brambles and blueberries. A little roasted apple too.

Finish

Tannin and spices tingle and keep going for quite a while.

Comment

Lovely stuff, well balanced. Like tucking into the sherry soaked iced finger at the bottom of a trifle.
