Description

An intriguing, almost decadent nose, balancing olive tapenade, rye bread and Jamon with sweet white wine, pear Belle Hélène, flambéed banana and custard tart. The palate was packed and stacked with flavour; quince jelly with Manchego, pineapple chunks in armagnac and balsamic on figs; the finish encompassed tobacco leaf, ginger snaps and espresso dregs. The reduced nose was a Mediterranean feast – olives and feta, melon and prosciutto, honeyed dates, orange boxes and treacle tart; the palate, a lip-smacking combination of apricot flan and limoncello with hazelnut, chocolate, oak and cheroots. After 12 years in ex-bourbon wood, we transferred this into a moscatel barrique.
