"What an excellent mix of fruit and cooked sweet vegetables to both smell and taste. On the nose, think apples and ginger sprinkled with mint and basil on top. On the palate, more rich depths are explored with raspberries and caramel, while there's an element of cooked zucchini and cut grass in there too. "
