When we poured the sample the first thing we noted, given its age, was the pale straw-colour like a muscadet wine from the Loire valley. Initially the nose neat had a crispy sweet citric freshness before, given enough time, a rhubarb-strawberry compote with fresh mint appeared. A wonderful waxy lemony, zesty texture on the palate with an exotic fruit cocktail waiting in the delicate never-ending finish made this a real crowd pleaser neat. Careful with adding water, the scent of daisies and buttercups in blossoming grassland was followed by a mineral freshness balanced with some orange zest and honey.
