COLOUR: Old gold, with ripe apricot hues.
NOSE: Fragrant, elegant, complex with a sweet oakiness reminiscent of an antique shop. Oak leads the way to heady floral fragrances of Freesia and Peony. Toffee notes emerge in time along with butterscotch, mint chocolate and summer fruit pie.
PALATE: Smooth and velvety, with a firm foundation. Sweetness is immediately followed by a tantalising burst of spices and bitter oranges drying out on oaky notes.
FINISH: Lasting, oaky and gingery. Distant smoke. A dry austere touch.
