Colour: Beautiful shades of amber are punctuated by soft highlights of pink and bronze.
Nose: Suggestions of mild tobacco and light wisps of smoke combine subtly with toasty aromas. Hints of roasted almonds intermingle and merge with Madagascar vanilla to produce soft and delicately perfumed notes.
Palate: The nose follows through to a palate of elegance and restraint, enhanced by fresher flavours reminiscent of apricot, then pistachio and blood peach.
