Deep amber with bright gold flecks.
Flinty, orange blossom honey with a slight whiff of struck match and linseed oil.
Starts sweet and quickly turns dry. At the beginning it’s honeyed with a touch of smoky bacon then dries with tar, hint of bonfire and charcoal, moving to honeycomb.
Smoky notes waft around the finish which has a touch of dried apple sprinkled with black pepper.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
