SMWS 39.142 - Who's for dessert?The nose has mango, cinnamon, milk chocolate orange and hints of mint leaves. The mouthfeel is thin with a little cling. The body has caramel, cinnamon and pear. The finish is pear, oranges and cinnamon.

Water brings out thick, short-lived whorling that doesn't quite mottle before it dissipates. The nose loses the milk chocolate orange and gains a hint of eucalyptus. The body loses the pear and has more orange. The finish also loses the pear and gains oranges.

A fine dram for dinner.
