NOSE – At first, aromas reminiscent of a smoky barbecue on a windy beach, with salt in the air. This leads on to smoked thyme and slightly grilled nectarine.
PALATE – Plumes of sweet smoke, a crunchy, indulgent candy apple, and a drizzling of blossom honey. Some heat appears with smoked chipotle chili paste, which is balanced by the freshness of a vase of just-cut flowers.
FINISH – A touch of the tanginess of grape peel marries with a slightly burnt pear pie, which evolves into a whisper of white pepper.
