Official Tasting Notes
Nose:Forest floor, a whiff of pine needles, eucalyptus, menthol, thymol, Manuka honey on sour fruit compote (plums and apricots), something woody like redgum and/or silky oak and a whiff of shellac: pleasantly reminiscent of a woodworking class in high school.
Palate:Generous, rich and fruity and then ferny and oaky, apricot and peach savoury tart with wintergreen and sage.
Finish:Hints of apricot jam, lingering fruit and herbs, chewy and fruity, warming with good oak tannins.
