4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottle from Over Farm, Cheltenham. For a new one I was pleasantly surprised by this. A nice light amber colour, it immediately hits you with a sweet green apple bite, before slowly soothing the back of the palette with a subtle tannin zing. Has a refined texture, light and summery yet possessing enough alcohol to command your attention. Very nice indeed.
