First Tasted, November 2004:
A very light example of the style. Bright waterlike colour. Subdued aroma of confectionary and ripe gooseberry followed by a hint of tropical fruit. The palate flavours are dilute, with delicate tropical fruit emerging, followed by a subtle grassy back palate. Soft acid finish.
