Unpeated Barley
Chardonnay/ 7 months finishing in ex-Cardeira Vineyard (Alentejo region) cask
Dist: 2012 Btl: 2018
Tasted: Nov 2018
The emphasis of the nose is definitely on the spirit and the ex-Chardonnay cask with just a subtle black fruit note. Hints of apricot, apple, milk chocolate, caramelised orange, ginger, lemon, barley, Provencal herbs and minerals. Wonderfully expressive and aromatic.

The palate is crisp and fresh with hints of honey, rich chardonnay apple, apricot and Provencal herbs. Hints of both dark and milk chocolate follow along with gentle wood spices, winey black fruit and pepper. Long and spicy with a subtle savoury note and lingering minerals.
