SMWS 48.91 - Sweet, juicy and perfumedThe nose has tinned peaches, Parma violets, and pot pourri. The mouthfeel is thin with a little cling. The body has a big hit of vanilla, then it's mandarins and white grapes and a hint of pineapple into the finish, which is pineapple and peaches.

Water brings out thick, short lived whorling that settles quickly into mottling. The nose gains more pineapple and loses the Parma violets. The palate explodes with pineapple chunk sweets, peaches and oranges - but it's lost the white grapes. The finish gains hints of oranges.

A fine summer's day dram.
