Description

The fairly gentle nose had these components – rosewater and flower gardens – also perfumed fruit (peach melba, tutti frutti) and pink wafer and iced Victoria sponge sweetness. The palate hinted at airport perfume counters but mainly balanced attractive fruitiness (banana split, citric peel, fruit punch) with a more energized, tingly heat and spice kick (chilli, ginger, new wood and wasabi). The reduced nose found a lady’s handbag (leather, cigarettes, powder puff) and lots of fruit (dried mango and pineapple, tinned fruit salad, citrus). The palate still had that duality – lemon, grapefruit, vanilla and strawberry fool, against wood, tobacco and root ginger tingles.
