Clear, pale golden with greeny tinge.
Crème anglaise, tarte tatin, digestive (graham cracker) biscuits and pink Hubba Bubba gum with subtle cinnamon and passion fruit.
Slightly sweet, buttery pastry with cream-of-soda vanilla, peachy fruit and watermelon. Perfectly drinkable at 48% but water mellows to amplify vanilla fruity pastry.
Spice comes out in the still mellow and pastry sweet finish. Easy and slightly sweet.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
