Nose – A rich combination of toffee and fruit rolls out of the glass – sultanas, stewed apples and freshly sliced, ripe pears. Soft spice, barley sugar and vanilla sponge cake sit underneath, with hints of caramel sauce.
Palate – Sharper than expected, with Granny smith apples joined by sultanas, plump raisins and Muscat grapes. The toffee and barley sugar continue with hints of citrus – sherbet pips and lemon chews. Behind everything is a warming bed of woody spice.
Nose – Fruity and lingering, with toffee quickly fading to reveal orchard fruit and cinnamon spice.
