4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle picked up at M & S, Oxford and consumed at Cropredy, Fairports Annual Reunion Festival 2015, Thurs 13th shared with Craig, Pluckett, Alec, Nellie, Bob (it was very popular) Rich golden colour, you can see that this is has a thick consistency with oily legs. Sweet concentrated appley aromas, some oak, this is apple pie territory with thoughts of nutmeg and cinnamon also thrown in there to confuse you. The flavour is along similar lines, but like Pluckett quite correctly notes that intense sweet apple just stays with you. This is seriously good, like a top notch dessert wine, love it.
