35% American oak, 20% New American oak, 25% French oak, 20% Vin du Natural casks
Tasted: Oct 2020
The nose is full and oaky, maybe not quite as oaky as the Organic Gaia 1.1, however there’s still a fair amount of sweet vanilla but mainly taught, French oak tannins. Pear, pepper, taught barley, wood smoke and again subtle winey note emerges. Less oak means that the barley/ spirit character is more evident.

The palate opens with the soft vanilla oak but like the nose the grippy French oak tannins are definitely more noticeable. Very fleshy with apricot, pear, white peach, taught barley and a touch of winey fruit. Mouth-filling and robust with developing citrus and minerals which follows through on to the finish and makes it an almost austere experience.
