Review and Tasting
Sampled on 22/01/2013
Clear, bright golden appearance.
Sauterne wine-like with salty sea-air, pine forest after rain, eucalyptus, spearmint and aromas of lemon meringue/lime cordial, honeysuckle, bergamot, clove and melon skin.
Dry, bitter-sweet with spicy flavours of clove, ginger and bergamot with lemon zestyness.
Fruity, apricot bitter-sweet finish sees the spicy elements, particularly sweet pepper notes linger.
