Nose - Subtle hints of red fruits, pomegranate and red currents give way to a symphony of tropical fruits, pineapple, mango and banana. Warming to banoffee pie, white chocolate and cinnamon sugar coated doughnuts.
Palate - Thick and velvety, syrupy and juicy. Apricots, peaches and crème caramel. Then a wave of fresh and stewed orchard fruits, toasted hazelnuts and almonds, black cherries and candied orange reduction, and freshly baked current squares spice with cinnamon and nutmeg.
Finish - More orchard fruits, spiced apple strudel smothered in a calvados caramel sauce, just a hint of dryness from the toasted oak, then butterscotch and vanilla and raisin ice cream fading finally to the last hint warming winter spices.
Overall - Very well balanced, viscous and juicy. Fresh tropical fruits, stewed orchard fruits, baked dark stone fruits, honeycomb ice cream, and gorgeous winter warming spices.
Available from 9.30pm on Wednesday 7th December 2022 through Fairley’s Wines, instore and online for £150. http://www.fairleys-wines.co.uk/
