There was a lovely warm/floral summer breeze as we hung freshly washed linen on the line beside a field of rolled-up hay bales. Silky sweet at first on the palate like a strawberry whipped dessert called Angel Delight before a spicy alcohol kick unfolded; we imagined biting into a dark chocolate praline filled with liquid strong Williams pear brandy. A drop of water and we discovered white Port poached pears in a caramel sauce. As it rolled gently off the tongue it reminded us of well-aged Calvados with a very late, but pronounced arrival of wood spices, cloves, fennel and star anise.
