WHAT AN EXPERT SAYS: Mushroom and stewed peach, almost a rotten gooseberry element to the nose; more delicate and subtle given that it is a single vintage. Clean, fruity and with more depth. A touch of chili spice on the finish gives it elegance and complexity; earth and tea leaf. Long and pure… utterly superb.
