Charles Oates Pommeau (700ml)
Taking a lead from 'Pommeau de Normandie', Charles Oates blend young apple brandy with the must of fresh apples. They then age it in casks for around twelve months. The resulting 'liqueur' offers gorgeous aromas of caramel fudge, apple strudel and baking spices. It's brisk, silky and deliciously fresh in the mouth, with cider and baked apple flavours rounded off by hints of ripe pear. Drying tannins balance the fruit. Intended as an aperitif, but experiment with blue cheeses too. 18.2% Alc./Vol. Tasted from a 20ml sample.
