Quite a fragrant bouquet of sweet green apple and mandarin, some wet stone mineral and attractive gentle perfume of kerosine. On the palate - just dry with some residual sweetness then a burst of flavour with grapefruit, lemon, peach and mandarin; plenty of acidity and light mineral tones leading to a moderate and balanced finish.
