(sample bottle best before 10/Jan/18) Cloudy & opaque, salmon pink with tiny specs of fruit pulp visible on glass.
Enticing, stewed pear and ripe pear.
Slightly sweet with balancing citrus tartness, attractive ripe pear and cooked rhubarb flavours.
Rhubarb flavour is perhaps strongest in the finish.
The bottle’s label says “Rhubarbe” (being Italian with the ‘e’) but the illustration depicts rhubarb and pear – indeed flavours of ripe pear are very evident alongside that of rhubarb. This blend makes for a harmonious and very appealing drink that’s very slightly sweet.
