SMWS 35.207 - Pine nuts and baked apple pieThe nose has lots of vanilla, baked apple, and cinnamon. The mouthfeel is thin with no cling. The body has toffee, vanilla and a little ginger. The finish is vanilla, ginger and a hint of blackcurrant.

Water brings out thin, rapidly expanding whorling that settles into lingering mottling. The nose gains wine gums and pear. The body gains caramel, and the finish gains pear and loses the blackcurrant.

A spring afternoon dram.
