Appearance: Light gold
Nose: Light, fresh fruit such as melon and mango, freshly cut resinous wood. A wonderful butter hint arrives late then the classic heather sweet note.
Palate: Very floral to start, reminiscent of the heather fields of Hobbister Moor in bloom, marzipan and coconut, and ending in a honey coated almond.
Finish: Lingering notion of balance between wood and cream, neither in the ascendancy, smooth violet softens the finish.
