Sorry, this item is no longer available

Tasted: Aug 2019
A very crisp, citric and mineral nose with vibrant barley, pear, apricot, gooseberry and subtle vanilla. With time the nose becomes wonderfully fragrant and barley'd with a lovely juicy, fruity intensity.

The palate opens with a touch more oak and the fruit is less mineral and more fleshy. The citrus character is also subtler which allows the emphasis to fall on the barley. Still very juicy and fruity with hints of gooseberry and lime on the middle. The minerality builds well and continues throughout. Long finish with lime, gooseberry and greengage balanced by a light honey note. Lightly mouth-watering and refreshingly mineral after-taste.
