Rich fruitiness on the nose. Dusty. I get peaches and honey melon. Baked apples with sugar and cinnamon. Mmm…rich and fruity on the palate as well. So smooth. Red apples, papaya and a hint of pineapple. The finish is sweet and fruity. Honey melon, papaya and pineapple.
My score: nose 23 / taste 23 / finish 23 / balance 23 = 92
