Review and Tasting

Sampled on 24/11/2012

Appearance

Clear, pale golden with small vigorous mousse.

Aroma

Green apple, lemon citrus, honey comb and chamomile with fresh kiwi fruit, toasted meringue and bruised mint leaves.

Taste

Pleasingly assertive, toasted biscuit, clean lemon citrus and tart gooseberry-like acidity balancing subtle honey sweetness with faint kiwi fruit.

Aftertaste

Lemon zesty citrus and subtle brioche and biscuit with slight pecan nut. Tiara bling factor has to be worth half a point.
