Review and Tasting

Sampled on 06/10/2011

Appearance

Clear, bright golden.

Aroma

Spicy, lightly woody nose with cinnamon, cloves, gingerbread and glue-like herbaceous aromas.

Taste

Spicy (ginger and white pepper in particular) wood influenced palate with tannins giving an almost chewy mouthfeel but balanced by subtle sweet fruit and honeyed flavours.

Aftertaste

The long spicy finish mellows with very subtle chocolate flavours emerging.
