Intense, rich and slightly spicy with passionfruit and blackcurrant leaf to the fore. On second look there are also deep tropical notes with a savory smokiness like bursting a passionfruit seed, or grilling pineapple. Lively attack that is pithy and rich but balanced by the fresh, juiciness of ripe pineapples. The mid palate is textured and has layers of tropical fruit density, citrus brightness and a light pithy feel that beautifully balances the freshness. This all leads to an incredibly long finish that is bound by a "wobbly" acidity that provides the bones for all the aforementioned flavors and textures to hang off. And they do, for a long time after the mouthful has gone.
Pear, lime and pomelo flavors are juicy and focused in this version, with intensity, purity and a touch of sea salt on the finish. Drink now.
