Phoebe Calver – 7.7
Nose: Thick-cut marmalade spread on toasted rye bread, then there’s a light vanilla creaminess, with some heather honey and peppermint.
Palate: It all gets richer, with dark chocolate, more of that vanilla, orange zest and Christmas cake spice and fruit.
Finish: The festive spice and dark chocolate continue.
Comments: Very approachable and pretty fun to be around.
Christopher Coates – 7.2
Nose: Cut grass, wet waxed canvas and daffodil, with icing sugar and white chocolate. Apple flan, lemon oil and sweet egg tart.
Palate: Light bodied. Sweet vanilla custard over apple flan, with a touch of prickly ginger heat. A little hot milk with honey. Milk chocolate, too.
Finish: Short and a little hot, on rice paper and green apple.
Comments: A serviceable and knock-backable single grain.
