In the mouth, it's redeemed somewhat. The virgin oak works nicely here and gives some much-needed depth to the sparkly, youthful flavors of citrus fruits (tangerines, mainly), red berries (redcurrants and a wisp of raspberry), and vanilla-coconut pudding. Perhaps some popcorn as well, or is that just the overall sweetness? Good mouthfeel.
The finish is on the short side. Some Seltzer / Tonic Water and swiftly fading bitterness.
Verdict: a bit of a Frankenstein, cobbled together from disparate parts. Easy to drink though, and with a nice tannic kick. A summer affair, all the way.
