Official tasting notes from the bottler:
Nose: Clean and fresh, presenting a combination of a vase of cut flowers and a Waldorf salad, drizzled with lemonand-mint dressing. Conference pears and coconut marshmallows appear, rounding out the enticing nose.
Palate: Crisp meringue with a citrusy cream filling is garnished with a sprig of mint. Notes of unripe pear appear alongside a spoonful of confectioner’s sugar and a slice of Key lime pie. A tough of tannic dryness follows.
Finish: Bright, vibrant and grassy. A medium length finish, with a touch of black pepper
