Appearance

Dry white wine, with pale yellow lights. Good beading.

Body

Light to medium.

Nose

Mellow and mild overall, with hardly any prickle. The first impression is of honeycomb; spun honey, but also a trace of beeswax. Beneath this is a faint floral note of dry grasses or wallflowers, with fresh orchard fruits on an earthy base. A little water softens the nose and adds pear drop boiled sweets, making all the aromas more evident.

Palate

At natural strength the texture is creamy-smooth, the taste intense and sweet overall, and both drying and slightly coating as that hint of beeswax re-appears. With water the effect is smoother and sweeter, the intensity reduced.

Finish

Quite long and warming with white pepper, becoming chili in the aftertaste. Lightly drying, it leaves the palate tingling. A drop of water starts to tame the chili-spice.
