Restrained nose with good earthy vegetable notes, mashed bananas and cream, salted almonds and a hint of malt vinegar.
Delicately spiced, buttery palate with overripe banana, fresh mint, a touch of salt and vegetal flavours.
Oak only really kicks in in the long spicy, vanilla, overripe banana finish with salt and cracked black pepper.
