    Brilliant straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. Aromas of ripe pear and apricot tinged with honeysuckle notes show good intensity out of the glass. Hints of cinnamon and spice ensue. Medium bodied with an elegant, rounded mouthfeel and showing more freshness than you would normally expect, it nonetheless lacks some intensity. Flavours of peach and apricot intermix with light honeycomb. Finishes dry and spicy with an aftertaste of ripe peaches, apricot, subtle honeycomb and spice.
    Cellar 3-4 years.

    Other Reviews….
    It has a slipperiness (not oiliness) and an elegant profile, both of which make it easy to drink, though the flavours themselves are a sophisticated mix of mineral, brine, nectarine and honeysuckle; they deserve to be served into a large-bowled glass.
    Drink by 2022.
