TASTING NOTESAppearance Clear and bright; rose-petal pink with cherry and raspberry-red reflections. Nose Brimming with red fruit, notably strawberries, raspberries and redcurrants; rose petals, fruit drops and a good, fresh finish. Palate Supple and well balanced with a delicate softness to offset the fresh tang of acidity, allowing the flavours of raspberry and cherry to fade elegantly away. A delicate sparkle and peppery, menthol notes on the finish complement the subtle citrus flavours Serve chilled at 8°.C
