Official tasting notes from the bottler:
Nose: A jar of caster sugar, infusing with split vanilla pods. Iced buns, warm pineapple jam and strawberry coulis appear, with a hint of Gala apples.
Palate: Tropical fruit notes abound, with passionfruit and pineapple pâte de fruits. The buns from the nose emerge as Danish pastries, covered with pieces of dried mango, followed by a drizzling of spicy honey.
Finish: A long, sweet, tropical finish, accented with a touch of earthiness and a dusting of garam masala.
