Bright amber in the glass, like autumn sunlight. The top notes in the aroma combine fresh and dried fruits: tinned pears, waxy apples, sultanas and glacé cherries. A soft texture on the tongue, a centre-palate delivery and a taste which starts lightly sweet and finishes lightly dry, with a warming finish. It drinks well straight, but a drop of water opens up the aroma and introduces an elusive floral scent, with a hint of milk chocolate and toasted oak. The taste is sweeter now, the texture softer (now with a spicy tingle across the tongue) and the medium-length finish leaves an after-taste of almonds.
