APPEARANCE: Golden colour.
NOSE: Yellow and green apples, pears, yellow plums, dried coconut, fresh and dried fruits. With a few drops of water it displays more tropical, sweeter fruits. (87p)
TASTE: The arrival is both fruity and mildly oaky. On the mid palate it is rather sweet and malty/fruity. Quite rich taste, but the mouthfeel is not particularly oily or waxy. Eventually some (quite lightly toasted) oak wood appear. With a few drops of water it becomes sweeter, fruitier and less malty. (86p)
EXIT: Now the tannins arrive and it becomes drier and mildly peppery. (85p)
OVERALL: Quite nice and rather fruity. TOTAL SCORE 86 points.
