Tasting Notes

"A veritable bouquet and fruit basket on the nose, with honey, flower buds, peaches, melons, papaya, and a sweet fruity note which suggests tropical fruit bubblegum. The palate starts dry, with grass and hay, before turning richer, with a malty sweetness, cereal, walnuts, and dates. It moves into a smooth, sweet finish with caramel, prunes, nuts, and chocolate."
