The nose carried a depth that brought to mind an old greengrocer’s shop stacked high with ripe bananas, coconuts and Turkish delight against a backdrop of heavy wood shelving. Warm apple pie arrived with cinnamon and nutmeg as wafts of coffee and dark chocolate joined buttery shortbread, blackcurrant sweets and oranges. Tangy notes continued after water with kumquat in an old dunnage warehouse and banana skins mixing with coconut husk. Additional water only accentuated the experience and released desiccated coconut, nougat and hot cross buns surrounded by the mature wood of oak casks. Cinnamon spice and fruitcake lasted well into the finish to be joined by drying tannins and grape skins.
