A lot of head-scratching from baffled panel members; crisp green apples at first followed by a gentle sweetness wrapped around toasted hazelnuts and almonds. A picture developed of a ship’s captain in his bourgeois study in the 15th century looking out to sea and wondering what lies behind the horizon. On the palate; mellow, incredibly elegant with flavours of pipe tobacco, black olive tapenade, soft Mediterranean herbs and traces of an old oak sea chest. Water added anchovies served in a harbour taverna as we drank rare amontillado sherry having lost the ‘flor’ (film of yeast on the surface of the wine) naturally throughout the decades as it aged in oak casks.
