Tasting Notes:

Nearly clear with a soft golden hue. Tart nose of pineapple and lychee. Tart and crisp on the front palate. Medium-bodied on the mid-palate. The tropical notes from the nose are there up front and the mid-palate has a creamy texture with hints of butter and a touch of butterscotch sweetness. The finish leaves you with earthy grain and touch of baking cocoa.
