Smells like fermented honey and a little nutty. Really nutty and savoury on the palate – more like a slice of whole-grain seeded malt loaf than anything fruity. And I can still get that smudge of fermented honey from the nose. A wine that very much reminds me of caramelised, roasted fennel bulb. Some dry fennel and caraway seed spiciness. Slightly oily – walnut oil and linseed oil. Different, and might be quite interesting to play with food pairings here. (TC)
