Review and Tasting

Sampled on 08/09/2011


Clear, golden.


Honeyed, toasted cereal nose with toasted nut aromas, pear and baked ripe banana.


Superbly structured palate with toasted grain, poached pear fruit, nutty flavours and gentle smoke in harmony.


Toasty malty finish with nutty fruit and a hint of ginger spice.
