Official tasting notes
Colour: dark gold
Nose: fresh wine notes, fruity, light, young peaches, lime blossom
Palate: Floral and a bit grassy, with fresh wine notes. The light wine notes interact with subtle fruit notes like mirabelle and peach. When you add some water, lime blossom, mountain currant and a suberb bitterness of fresh grapefruits appear. Very oily and creamy mouth feeling.
Finish: long, oily, syrupy, later some menthol and pink grapefruits, really. Hints of green tea.
