Applewood smoked cream

Highland, Eastern

Please limit one bottle per member

The aromas gently advanced with the soft and luscious nature of thick cream drizzled over pears poached in wine. Smoke arrived shortly after but much sweeter than that of a peat fire. It was more reminiscent of charred applewood as its smouldering fragrance imparted a heavenly overtone to sizzling bacon and sticky glazed pork on a barbeque grill. Aromas of dried lavender yielded to the fresh minerality of salty sea air and fresh scallops with a vinaigrette dressing. The palate delved into mussels in a cream and wine sauce with the gentle warmth of chipotle paste and peppery rocket. Maintaining perfect balance the finish was sweet like sushi rolls and prawn cocktail crisps.
