Review and Tasting
Sampled on 31/05/2014
Clear, pale golden.
Honeyed and floral with honeysuckle and jasmin, candied orange peel, lemon and lime zest, passion fruit and fresh apricot.
Slightly sweet with a soft mouthfeel. Flavours of honey, candied orange peel, dandelions, mango and passion fruit with light acidity, faint pine and crushed mint leaves.
Floral, zesty lime, honey and balancing acidity. While the palate is slightly sweet the finish is refreshingly dry.
