Tasting Notes from the Producer
Flavour Lingering almond, refreshing citrus and honey notes. Enticing with a bright, silky finish and a lovely balance of sweetness and acidity, dry and clean. There is an initial burst of honey at first, very refreshing, followed by the almond and florals such as honeysuckle and white acacia flowers. A lovely subtle oak finish still on the tongue afterwards.
