After the blossoming period in June comes the setting (Nouaison in French), i.e. the birth of the berry.
Available 14th Dec 2013
The fecundated vine flower forms a tiny green berry that fixes itself onto the stem.
GVine Nouaison captures the emotion around this birth and its silver grey bottle embodies the unique and vibrant concentration of energy, intensity and spiciness of this phase.
Tasting notes: Silky, intensely spicy, subtly floral.
Nose: Round and warm, acutely botanical, viny, woodsy/forestlike, juniper and cassia bark.
Palate: Fruity and rich. Intense and complex aromas of cinnamon bark, baked citrus, floral juniper follow through on a round, silky, zesty and robust entry. Very sharp and with a solid character.
Finish: powerful interplay of juniper, herb, wood and flowery notes, fruity ripe, citrusy.
G'Vine Nouaison amplifies the aromas of the spices, yet retains the sensual and silky grape base as well as the subtle floral note.
Superb in a dry martini or in a cocktail, it is an absolute alternative to the classic London Dry gin.
