Colour: Winter sunshine
Flavour profile: Sweet, fruity & mellow
The nose was fresh, leafy and herbal (sorrel, nettle,
melissa) with nice fruity aromas (sour apple sweets, lemon puffs, unripe mango)
and some floral perfumes (honeysuckle, elderflower) –we also got light
suggestions of new books and marker pens. The palate was mainly sweet, citric
and juicy, reminding us of Haribo Tangfastics, wine gums, jelly babies and apple
snow – hints of clove and some herbal elements completed the picture. The
reduced nose had pleasantly invigorating fruit salad freshness, some buttery
pastry and chilled muscadet or Eiswein. The palate now settled into a
mouth-watering blackcurrant and lemon sorbet – fresh as a winter waterfall.
Drinking tip: Something to enjoy in the shade of
a summer garden.
