Colour: white wine. Nose: chalk, bamboo shoots, raw potatoes, green apples and pears, perhaps even beans, grist and pot ale… What’s pretty obvious here is that this baby is not cask-driven. No, we shan’t complain. With water: no changes that I can detect, which won’t make for some utter scandal. Perhaps a drop of cherry juice? Mouth (neat): excellent, on cider apples, lemon juice, and just a touch of fresh ginseng. This one’s good for your health, I’d wager. With water: absolutely excellent, very fresh, lively, even refreshing. Green and white fruit juices, going towards our preferred Sauvignons Blancs. No, no cat p*** whatsoever. Finish: rather long, tense and tart, always very refreshing. Kiwi, celeriac and fennel juice. Have to try that one of these days. Comments: goes down quicker than a D.T. speech. Love it. I mean, this little Glen Elgin.
