Bethany Whymark – 8.2
Nose: A tropical burst of passionfruit and pineapple. A medley of summer fruits smothered in sweet custard (the tinned kind). Touches of coconut and vanilla.
Palate: Stewed red berries come to the fore, along with some piney juniper and a little herbal spice.
Finish: A little nuttiness, accompanied by touches of sweet pineapple and passionfruit pulp.
Comments: The palate felt a little flat for me in comparison with the nose, but this would still make a lovely sip with pineapple juice and soda.
Phoebe Calver – 8.4
Nose: Straight off the bat it’s thick passionfruit compote, followed by pastel de nata filling and juniper cutting through the richness.
Palate: More citrus here, with lemon juice making way for fresh passionfruit. Warm and spiky juniper returns and leads out with homemade vanilla cream.
Finish: Fresh vanilla creaminess, accompanied by punchy juniper tingle.
Comments: Really lovely and fresh, giving me all of the summery vibes, sat out in the garden with friends.
