The nose was a one-armed-bandit jackpot of fruits – plum, pears and pineapple, lemon tart and fruity rum punch; also combining brown sugar and syrup with oak, balsamic and clove. The palate whispered of cardamom and chilli but sang full-throatedly of juicy exotic fruits, gummi bears, lemon peel and honey. The reduced nose became more citric – Key lime pie and lemon drizzle cake, sherbet straws, perfumed pear and cut flowers scattered over oak floorboards. The reduced palate was a flavour bomb of lemon zest, kumquat and lime sweets, rhubarb rock and Haribos; the finish entertained us with jasmine tea and kiln-dried oak.
