Peach and honeysuckle send very subtle evocative aromas on the nose. On the palate, real spice becomes apparent: pepper as well as grapefruit. The full fruit approach on the medium-sweet palate fully benefits from that grapefruit edge: this is balanced, refreshing and moreish. Drink while aromas are at their peak.
