Peach or orange blossom. Lemon. Hazelnuts.
Pancakes with cream. Orangey. Buttercups. Herbal.
Tingly dryness.
Delicately balanced. Clean. Drinkable. There is an element of luxury, but never quite the frisson of luxury that the marketing implies.

Dave Broom

A little soapy without water, but with attractive perfumed floral notes and a hint of tangerine. Water pulls out some butter toffee, cream and orange/mint.
A lovely soft, grassy start which then opens into a lovely interplay between the soft toffee centre and the high citric notes. Good weight.
Pretty short which lets it down a little.
A good mouthful. OK, its not hugely demanding but a great introduction.
