Written in the Welsh language in the 11th century, The Mabinogi are the earliest prose work in the history of Britain. The interrelated tales deal in mythology, history, political themes, romances and magical fantasies. The stories feature strong women characters, and none are stronger than Rhiannon – an enchantress and a horse goddess who could ‘out-run any pursuer even whilst riding slowly’.
Spicy sweetness with a hint of vanilla; oak tannins, red berries, blackcurrants, hazelnuts, pears, sultanas and sweet marzipan.
Smooth velvety sweetness; creamy caramel, figs, red berries, delicate frangipane, chocolate ganache and a touch of coffee.
Sweet and dry with long lingering oak tannins.
