Pale straw
Nose

Very rich, very fruity, succulent ripened fruitiness. Tropical fruits, nectarines, greengage plums, marmalade, quince paste?, apple-flavoured bubble gum, hints of spa wafers, gummy candies, and bits of sugared lime.

Taste

Astringent to the fore, with herbal roughness, sappy, grassy almost, liquorice (astringency), bitter, candied almonds, walnuts?, hazelnuts. The mouth feel is mellow and light-bodied. There is restricted oakiness there, mild/thin vanilla, crisp toasts, roasted pistachios.

Finish

Simple and unpretentious finish, soft, yet warming still. Tart/green? peach, tasting nice though, bites of wild orange, orange rind/zest, bergamot oil? and some mild spices.
