A fragrant and perfumed nose with white peach blossom and jasmine, elevate the primary fruits of kiwi, lychee and lime. Beneath subtle notes of Thai basil, cardamom and chamomile offer delicate complexity. The palate is subtly textured and nicely balanced with woven layers of finger lime, passion fruit, lemon and nectarine. There is a degree of brightness that runs through the mid palate with sherbet-like acidity leading to a fine and slightly chalky finish.

"What a beautiful drink. Sunshine and tropical goodness all the way with some textural feels for good measure. A dollop of Semillon (10%) adds licks of citrus, but abundant tropical fruits waltz about with ease. Touches of cut grass and green herbs chime in seamlessly with a finish of pineapple, stonefruit, passionfruit and a squeeze of lemon. Sauvvy fans - go here. Drink now to five years."
