ALLOVATE (2980) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2016
1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Low pffft as the cap comes off. An effervescent pour fades to almost still in an instant giving it the appearance of a glass of Chardonnay. Presents mineral-like and briney on the nose with hints of stewed pear and apple fruit, water crackers and soft, white cheese. Sweet, even chilled it was borderline cloying. Light bodied with a carbonic acid bite upfront and a softly crisp finish. Nothing but gammy pear drops as far as flavour. Light salt in the finish. Just sweet, carbonated fruit juice overall.

Bottle - pours flat, looks like really watered down lime cordial. some slightly sweet notes but not a lot. Taste is over powering sweetness.
