Red apple, apricot, tropical fruit and grilled pineapple with nutty toasty oak.

Orchard and tropical fruit – red apple and passion fruit with toasty spicy (cinnamon, nutmeg and clove) oak. Water amplifies red apple and passionfruit.

Dry spicy oak, red apple and passionfruit with Christmassy spice.

Overall

Sweet and fruity. Toasty spicy vinous oak perfectly balances rich red apple and passionfruit with faint nuttiness.
