Crushed & Cured

Little Pomona, Art of Darkness 2021


Sunshine on straw in the glass, there’s a characteristic hint of damp cave on the nose with a big weight of ripe stone buried underneath – all apricot and peach fuzz – along with spice and perfume. In the mouth it balances barrel influence and plum and apricot juiciness with beautiful freshness and silky texture. The tannins have softened over time and have the texture of wet slate. 

It's a blend of four-fifth Ellis Bitter aged in cognac barrels for 12 months with wine-barrel-aged Dabinett.
