Official SMWS Panel Tasting Notes:
A wonderfully mentholated and aromatic nose at first, with wood resins, fir cones, dessert wines and pressed flowers. With water this evolved to include fresh greenery, petrichor, snapped twigs, lemon peel and fruit acids.
The palate opened with tarragon, balsamic reduction, pineapple chunks and overripe mango smoothie. A wonderfully juicy texture with good levels of spice threaded throughout. Reduction brought plentiful creamy custard notes, along with marshmallow, golden syrup, burlap and fruit sherbet. Previously in a bourbon barrel for 5 years before transfer to a 1st fill Cosecha wine barrique.
