"The nose is a playful and evolving interplay between rustic and fruity with notes of smoke, black pepper, brine, tamarind, bean sprouts, green papaya and red plum. This theme continues on the palate with more papaya, clotted cream, butterscotch and soil. It has an almost chewy texture as glides over the palate like a pad of butter."
