Bright pale straw colour. Intense, spicy, honeysuckle nose with some slightly resiny, grassy, yellow grapefruit notes. Dry, medium-light bodied, tangy, spicy, ripe yellow grapefruit-plum flavours with a lingering, crisp, unoaked finish. Tasted twice. The bottle that had been open for several hours had taken on Seville orange marmalade “sweaty” notes. Quite ready-to-drink.
