WSET style tasting note
Appearance: clear and bright, medium intensity lemon, showing tears.
Nose: clean on the nose, of medium (+) intensity, youthful, with aromas of grapefruit zest, cut cooking apple, creamed apple puree and beeswax, with a hint of anise.
Palate: a dry wine, with high acidity, a slight gummy grip, medium alcohol and a medium body, of medium intensity, with a smooth texture, and flavours of cut grapefruit, lemon pith and green dessert apple. A long length with a clean crisp lightly gummy finish.
Quality: a good quality wine, with balanced acidity and intensity of fruit flavour, which are harmonious with the modest alcohol. A modest aroma and flavour palette, with more on the nose, and a modest level of fruit concentration on the palate. This wine is ready to drink, and will keep for 3-5 years, but not improve with aging.
