Rich with weighty notes right from the start. Savoury dried fruit - shrivelled raisins and dried prunes, warm leather and sharp woody spice, clove and mace, are complimented by sharp green apple and nectarine, with some sweeter fruity notes behind: sultanas and figs.
Light at first, but with a thick mouthfeel and weighty body. The sharp apple from the nose is joined by sweet and sour apricot, and bitter stones. Waves of brown sugar then roll in to provide a balanced sweetness, with nutmeg spiced baked apple and green leaves following.
Sweet and sour fruit, fading to green leaves and soft spice.
