Sam Coyne – 7.8 

Nose: Waxed lemon peels. Watermelon perhaps? Something lightly fruity. Herbaceous, with a touch of sage.

Palate: Warming floral notes, poppy perhaps or lavender maybe. A classy juniper spine.  The early citrus note of the nose makes an appearance. Flavours are confident.

Finish: Lemon is pronounced on the finish, which is lasting. More herbal
than you expected.

Comments: Manages to successfully go for crisp sweetness to earthy in one swoop. Easy drinking.

Phoebe Calver – 8.1 

Nose: Is that cucumber, it’s fresh, light and fruity from the off. A little lemon spritz keeps that freshness going.

Taste: Follows on from the nose quite unexpectedly, hitting you with a herby wall of sage, like you’re munching on a leaf, before the freshness of the cucumber and zing of lemon remains.

Finish: Long and zesty.

Comments: This could be pretty refreshing with a bit of elderflower cordial and tonic water, maybe a bit lethally drinkable in the end.
