Appearance

Clear, pale golden.

Aroma

Honeyed and floral with honeysuckle and jasmin, candied orange peel, lemon and lime zest, passion fruit and fresh apricot.

Taste

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.
