Green Spot Montelena has initially been matured in traditional sherry and bourbon casks then finished for 12 months in French oak Zinfandel wine casks from the prestigious Chateau Montelena in Napa Valley, California.
The nose is crisp oak combined with the soft sweetness of vanilla, white chocolate, and marshmallow, balanced with signature Green Spot red apples and ripe pears, along with pomegranate, cranberries and maraschino cherries, the contribution of the wine cask. You also get a sweet mouth coating takes on a dry note thanks to the effect of the wine cask.
Pot still spices subside with zesty citrus leading to ripe orchard fruit and red berries. A touch of marzipan and toasted oak add to the complexity.
