Nose
Tropical fruits (mango, tinned pineapple and coconut, too), Fino sherry note with hint of toffee. Fresh and vibrant.
Palate
Juice from tinned fruit salad, this is a quaffable and almost like a cocktail in a nosing glass, it is so fruity. Lots of vanilla ice cream and fresh pine.
Finish
Short, sweet, almost Champange-like.
Comment
Is this a sweet Blanc du Blanc?

Annabel Meikle

79
Nose
Hints of damp paper, then green wine gums, gooseberry and lime. Herbal notes of crushed mint and it becomes more mineralic with time, with flint and damp moss.
Palate
A clean agave freshness with poached pear, followed by Gomme syrup and bubble gum on the sweeter spectrum. There was some bitterness like grapefruit
Finish
Crisp and cleansing, with a grainy grip.
Comment
Refreshing and summery; it would make a great mint Julep.
