Offers aromas of winter layered with toasted hair and cold finger tips, sweet herbal trails and a questioning core, dry palate, melody of green tea, foggy persistence, nicotine. Altogether a somewhat weedy flavour, hint of microfleece, a woolly darkness and lingering, perhaps endless, finish.
Pair with several children, three wrapped in adolescence, the savoury word choices of a 12 year old girl, the salty wit of a highly talkative nine year old boy and the heady scent of independence, open doors and the less than flattering appraisal of young adults.
Move over, Bordeaux,
melon spears, soft cheese and fig crostini.
