Light, delicate, but complex stuff. Signature PJ graininess is offset by vast quantities of fresh orchard fruit. Apples and pears initially; as it warms, this leans more towards white peaches and florals. Absolutely loads of citrus zest; oranges and lemons. All of this is wrapped up in light, sweet honey. An ever-so-slight yeasty funk plays around in the background – not in an offputting way – it’s a nice extra dimension.
Follows the nose pretty closely. Actually, make that very closely. More of that green fruit. Granny Smiths. Very mouthwatering; there’s bags of citrusy acidity, but no single citrus fruit stands out in particular. As with the nose, peaches and nectarines open up and overcome the green fruit with time. Fruit progression feels like a journey from Chablis to Pouilly Fuissé. More honey, and a tiny bit of butterscotch. It’s still delicate, medium-bodied stuff. Towards the end elements of spices kick in; the influence of toasty oak and perhaps a smatter of juniper.
