Review and Tasting
Sampled on 04/07/2011
Clear, golden appearance.
Sauterne wine-like nose with honeysuckle floral notes, stoney mineral aromas and a touch of bergamot.
Dry, manzanilla sherry-like palate is slightly salty with grape flesh, orange bitters and cardamom, cinnamon and clove spice.
Spicy elements linger and build over a flavour akin to oxidised fruity apple juice.
