Pronounced and highly expressive delivering an abundance of fruits. Apples, pears, peaches and melons provide fresh notes, whilst candied lemon and orange peels and pineapples supply a real vibrant sweetness. The fruits are underscored by distinct herbal and vegetal notes – a hint of green pepper gives a real feel of greenhouses growing both fruits and vegetables at the same time. There’s a slightly mineral steely note that cuts through both fruits and sweetness offering a pleasant sharpness.
Saddle up and prepare to get all of your 5 A Day in liquid form! Rich, mouth-coating and sweeter than the nose suggests, straight from the off we’re in fruit explosion territory again. A similar profile to the nose, but with some subtle differences – the fruits are sweeter, favouring more stone and tropical flavours – and they’re all wrapped up in some zingy sherbet. There’s a wonderful balance delivered from more bitter fruits such as grapefruits and limes – this prevents the overt sweetness from becoming cloying.
Medium-long with some very agreeable wood influence coming to the fore including both pepper and cinnamon, and a slight tang of salinity to wrap things up.
