'Spicy, oaky aromas, with richness and sweetness, but with high-quality fruit, and the oak on the palate very reined-in.' Charlie Young, team leader. 'With smoked almonds and white apple blossom on nose, this is restrained and elegant, with very lean citrus acidity and a fresh, sweet Braeburn apple finish.' Claire Love, Love Consultancy.
