Full SMWS Tasting Notes & Video
We found ourselves strolling through flower gardens surrounded by timber fencing and a vegetable patch that delivered wafts of fresh carrots. Flavours of dried dates, dark chocolate and ginger combined fruity and sweet notes with warming spice. Dried apricots and apples then formed into sweet tarts laced with vanilla as we sipped on black tea with sugar.
Water only darkened the date as blackberries danced with coffee beans and liquorice. Curious oily notes of Riesling wine sauntered alongside dried autumn leaves as seasoned oak surrounded black cherries and blackcurrant tarts. Finally we found bananas and barley lured further spice on the finish.
