Shimmery, pale gold with the faintest hint of grass green.
Like the appearance is light and airy, Faint notes of citrus play with sweet elderflower.
Initially florals roll fast and free from the glass onto the tongue. Chasing behind quickly is a little minerality that subdues the florals. There is a little astringency and thinness in the first mouthful, keep sipping and what develops is rather pleasant. White peaches mingle merrily with ripe honeydew and elderflower. The zesty zing of grapefruit provides a great balance along with the gentle acidity, that just seems to delicately dance around. It’s like a wonderful waiter at dinner, there to make everything better without imposing. A short, crisp, sweet granny smith finish.
This would be great with fish or some spicy Thai food.
A little light for a winters night by the fire, it makes one wish for long summer evenings.
