Clear, bright old gold amber.
Gentle and gentile toasty oak, fresh laundry, lychee and toasted cashew nuts with faint milk chocolate. Water releases citrus and cream soda vanilla.
Cereal and tangerine segments served with not quite ripe pineapple, tar and elegant spice. With water citrus is even more evident, as is nutty dry oakyness and chocolate.
Relatively short but wonderfully toasty finish with nutty vanilla - faint coconut perhaps, faint citrus zest and cocoa.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
