Review

Green-tinged yellow. Potent, mineral-accented bouquet of green apple, quince and anise, with complicating notes of chamomile and honeysuckle gaining strength with air. Vibrant, sharply focused orchard fruit and lemon pith flavors show surprising depth and pick up spiciness with air. Finishes sappy and powerful, with lingering iodine and floral notes.
