Clear, mid to deep golden amber.
Zesty orange, vanilla, white chocolate fudge and hazelnuts with nutmeg and faint back pepper. More woody with water amplifying almond and biscuit.
Pear drops, dried apple, almond paste, white chocolate and black pepper. Go easy with the water but with the merest splash, fabulously rich toasted almond / amaretto notes emerge.
Vanilla, surprisingly dry black tea tannins and lingering oaky finish after such a rich fruity palate.
Fruity and rich with white chocolate, pear drops and dried fruit. Balanced by black tea tannins and an oaky garnish.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
