Notes

Aromas were delivered to us in a wooden crate and undeniably tilted in the direction of tangy fruit. The line between orange marmalade and apricot jam blurred into a haze of fermenting cider and spicy fruit chutney. Amidst the zest and tang came softer and funkier frontiers that dipped from sweet mushrooms into bread dough and the oiliness of lanolin. The sweetness returned in the form of crème brulee and orange soufflé, served with a rather generous helping of hazelnut whipped cream. The tongue tingled with cloves and crystalised ginger with the tangy vavoom of orange skin and cranberries in tagine spices. Darker notes followed, chocolate sauce over venison served with full-bodied red wine that lined the finish with fine tannins and crushed walnuts.
