Notes

On first approach the nose had subtle leafy notes and orchard fruits – eventually we got lemony, jelly bean and flying saucer confectionery – and, if left a while – dunnage and cardboard. The first taste found beguiling sweetness, which was soon overwhelmed by lively lemon, lime and grapefruit, chilli and popping candy sparkle – zesty, zingy, zippy and zappy. More citrus appeared on the reduced nose – lemon balm, orange skin and lemon sponge cake – sunny flower meadows in the background. The final palate – good body and viscosity – itchy, twitchy, tongue-tingling friskiness – flavours of sherbet lemons, gooseberry and turmeric, with a concluding floral flourish.
