Clear, pale golden.
Dried fruit and muesli with an appealing spicey whiff reminiscent of UHU glue.
Powerful and yet elegant with apple, pear and peach fruit, fresh barley and judicious spice. Falls apart somewhat with water – go easy.
Fruit gibes way to a dryer finish.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
