Panel's tasting note: "The nose held very pleasant fruity sweetness (sherbet lemons, red lips, Turkish Delight, Edinburgh Rock), while pears, apples, straw and wood, somehow suggested autumn orchards. The palate was immediately warmly attractive – all summer sunshine, motherhood and apple pie – like relaxing in a farmhouse kitchen with Victoria sponge cake and caramel apple granny cake. The reduced nose took us to gardens (wooden trellis, bougainvillea, wisteria, grass, vines) where we were supping cloudy lemonade and cider. The palate was now easy and indulgent – the apple dessert wonderfully balancing sweet and tart flavours; the wood was now as tasty as an ice-lolly stick."
Drinking tip: "One to enjoy in the garden, while the apple pie is cooling on a windowsill"
