9.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Floral weight - lilac, hyacinth; before coconut comes through closely followed by nettles/spinach and a growing mintiness. With water it's Oolong tea and fresh ginger.
Palate: Oily and juicily energetic with good racy acidity given by the green apple freshness in the middle of the tongue. Mint is here as well along with slightly deeper juicier fruits.
Finish: Sharp and sassy.
Comment: Complex, subtle. Recommended quite a bunch this issue.
