    Bottler’s notes:    The nose gave us a cornucopia of fruits – stewed apples, sultanas, cantaloupe and orange. Mellifluous sweetness – honey, marzipan, treacle tart and deeper aromas of cinnamon, star anise and vanilla. The palate offered a balanced duality of full-on seductive sweetness; spun sugar, butterscotch, marrons glacés, Nutella, baked bananas and more platonic teasing hints of wood spice, mahogany, aftershave and tobacco – definitely complex. The reduced nose discovered beeswax furniture polish, pralines, foamy shrimps and raspberry sauce on ice-cream. The palate became somehow even more complex and more interesting – brown sugar, baklava and fruit syrup; then sweet oak, old leather and warming spices.
