Flavor/Aroma: La Mola has a floral character all of its own and is always recognisable. Spring and early summer smells of freshly-cut grass and even hay but above all of this there is something tingly which is preparing us for something fresh and probably peppery in the mouth. But the mouth is more complex than this: there is a delcious freshness but this is complemented by a warm, full, buttery nuttiness. There are flavours of artichoke, lettuce, apples and Swiss chard. The lingering sensation at the end is of olives picked at exactly the right moment: fresh, a little bitter with just the right amount of burn. Perfect balance.
