Lemon sorbet, grain, corn, mint, figs, prunes, vanilla, geranium
Corn, cherry, green apple, citrus, cassis, bit bittery with a hint of vanilla in the background
Bit bitter, dry, and not long
4 out of 10
Not very strong on the nose, but with fresh tones. The palate gave me a totally different picture sadly, quite bitter. At first you get some fruit tones and a bit sweet, but turns very fast in dry and bitter.
It is a lot like the Plate Valley, not really one for me sadly...
Tasting scores explained a bit. It all depends on the moment, ambiance etc, but to have a guideline for my own preferences. This differs for each person... See my wish list in the menu above to see what I prefer the most at the moment.
<5 Maybe need to taste again, but would not end up in the collection, depends of the matter of between 1 and 5 how fast I will try it again.
5-6 It's a maybe, but not very enthusiastic about it. Can drink it, but if I have a choice I will choose something different. Don't have to wake me up for these.
6-7 I like, but they just miss something on the taste, finish, depth of flavours ect to make this something wow! Love to have a dram sometimes of that but buy a whole bottle? Mhmm... not sure...
7-8 Well, you can start waking me up for these, more depth, these I would love to add to my collection
8-9 With these I would love to sit for a while and just enjoy, and slowly, very slowly enjoy these. These I would absolutely love in my collection, but sadly not always in my price range.
9-10 Well, what can I say, just wow...... No words to describe it. Wake me up now!!
