Review and Tasting


Sampled on 15/11/2017

Appearance:

Clear, pale golden amber.

Aroma:

Pungent dried pineapple with faint wormwood and herbal scents.

Taste:

Rich pineapple and tropical fruit is balanced by tart grapefruit, wine acidity and mild bitter wormwood and light herbal tones.

Aftertaste:

More vermouth bitterness and tart grapefruit is revealed the cleansing finish.

Overall:

Dried pineapple Riesling and tart grapefruit notes dominate the palate of this off-dry vermouth, with wormwood and herbal notes relatively subdued. However, vermouth bitterness emerge in the cleansing finish.
