Anmerkungen

A complex and venerable nose – undeniable tropical fruits; gorse flowers, old-fashioned sweetie shops, potpourri, tiger balm and waxed jackets – eventually we were sipping old Sauternes in a freshly polished stately home. More tropical fruits appeared on the palate – dried papaya, cherry throat sweets, Anton Bergs, Gewürztraminer, sultanas soaked in calvados and a pineapple Mivvi ice-lolly. With water (absolutely unnecessary by the way) the nose found sandalwood, jasmine, elderflower, toasted marshmallows and fruity rum punch. The palate got chocolate ice-cream wafers, passion-fruit sorbet, honeydew syrup, marmalade and fruity muesli, with black tea, pickled ginger and tobacco strands to finish.
