"All honey and fruit on the nose, with apples, apricots, and melons, as well as floral notes and hay. The palate is soft and honeyed, with stewed fruits, light spice, and a faint note of watermelon Jolly Ranchers. Very smooth, leading to a short finish where more of a rich sweetness emerges. Elegant and easy sipper."
