A fruit bowl of fresh flavours, full & richly textured.
Tasting Notes: Citrus yellow colour with a greenish tinge. Intense tropical fruit aromas with vegetal hints. The aromas carry through to the palate with added ripe stone fruits and minerals notes. Fuller in body than you would expect with lovely depth of flavours, generous texture leading to a long persistent finish.
