A rich, caramelly bouquet of fragrant candied apricots and orange blossom alongside flavours of cedar and a hint of honeycomb. A welcoming entrance of ripe peaches with notes of caramelised pear and honeydew melon underlined by layers of silky spice.
A cool spring was followed by warm flowering conditions, resulting in healthy yields, combined with beautiful summer weather, with some rain at the start of April.
