SWEDISH MARKET EXCLUSIVE - release date TBC
The land farmed by brothers William & Pat Doyle at Cooladine – Cúil an Daingin, corner fort – stands close to old Quaker burial grounds west of the River Slaney, beyond the historic barley town of Enniscorthy. These free-draining, fertile fields derived from the famously productive Clonroche soils are composed of shingle to clay-rich marl, which mostly stem from the Ordovician shale bedrock.

Nose: Malted biscuits, rhubarb tart, toffee, almonds, aniseed, white mustard, grass drying into hay, marshmallows, coffee cream, red apples and red grapes.
Taste: Cloves, sweets, apples, black pepper, ginger nut biscuits, crème brûlée, liquorice, barley sweets, dried basil and sherry trifle.
Finish: A spicy oiliness that tingles on the tongue, and lingers into a dry gentle sweetness.
