Panel's tasting note: "This was a total shock! – completely unexpected in character. Our noses found jam, buttery cake mix, ginger biscuits and toasted tea-cake – but how come we got burnt paper, wood-burning stoves and cockles in brine? Someone even mentioned ozone and peat! The palate was peaty, salty, ashy and slightly metallic – like cooking burgers on a steam train shovel. With water – the nose got rock-pools and a pot of mussels cooked in wine on a beach fire; also lemon icing sugar, rainbow drops and Pillsbury dough. The reduced palate – smooth and sweet, but with burnt wood, gentle peat and a country house kitchen."
Drinking tip: "To warm you up while bravely cooking mussels on the beach in spring"
