Beautiful, lightly honeyed nose with a Sauvignon Blanc-esque, fresh grassiness and hints of apricot, white fruit and barley. Just a suggestion of vanilla oak.

The palate opens with soft, subtle white fruit, barley and a touch of milky oak. Off-sweet apricot, pineapple and banana follow. Zippy citrus and the grassiness comes through on the middle. Lovely, fresh, mouth-watering finish with lime, grapefruit, gooseberry, white liquorice and finally a touch of acacia honey. Superb!
