SMWS 35.154 - Rewarding endThe nose has has vanilla, floral bouquets, and a hint of honey. The mouthfeel is thin, with a little cling. The body has Eton mess, kiwi fruit, and a hint of lemon. The finish is lemon and kiwi fruit.

Water brings out rapidly expanding whorling that settles quickly into mottling. The nose now gains some pineapple. The body also gains pineapple and some more vanilla, but loses some of the Eton mess. The finish also gains pineapple.

A very nice fruity dram - spring sunsets and sunrises would be well enhanced by this.
