Colour: pale gold. Nose: it’s the fruity lightness that’s striking, no wonder this was very popular. It’s like walking in an orchard in the end of august. Bags of juicy apples, gooseberries, peaches, redcurrants, also strawberries… There’s also this faint smokiness, very enjoyable, between ueber-toasted bread and charcoal smoke. Barbecued fruits? Anyway, this is very nice, it was one of the great batches (not all were stunning). Mouth: it’s probably not as excitingly fresh, and probably a little too cardboardy and tea-ish at first sips. Slightly porridgy as well, barleyish… There are nice touches of melons and apples but other than that, it’s much less inspiring than on the nose. Finish: a tad short, tea-ish, with also some lemongrass. Comments: I liked the nose a lot, the palate is more or less okayish. Hard to score.
