Full SMWS Tasting Notes & Video
We found a nose bursting with stone fruits, soft fabrics, burlap and the precision of clean, knife-edge cereals. In addition we noted Turkish Delight, waxed canvas, pressed wildflowers and marjoram, vase water, tomato vines in a greenhouse and lemon zest. With water there was a renewed abundance of fresh flowers such as daisies, dandelions and geraniums. Also grassy notes, under ripe apples, blueberry muffins, fresh wool, snapped twigs and potting sheds.
The neat palate displayed the tartness of green apple with sunflower seeds, trail mix, rapeseed oil, unsweetened granola and a rather gravelly minerality. Water gave us chamomile tea, chopped chives, digestive biscuit, flapjacks, lemongrass and Edinburgh rock candy. Enchanting stuff!
