Fragrant and punchy aromatics of fresh grapefruit segments leading to hints of tropical fruits (passionfruit and pineapple). Underpinning the fruitier flavours is a dill-like herbaceousness. Similar flavours are found on the long and acid-driven palate, along with a suggestion of flesh from barrel ageing. A crisp, citrus pith edge helps round out the finish.
