The nose has sweet fruit notes - red apples, pears, peaches and mango. The mouthfeel is thin with no cling. The body has more pears, red apples, passion fruit and mango. The finish is lingering, with pears and mangoes.
Water brings out compact whorling that settles into brief mottling. The nose now gains more peaches and mango. The body gains apricot, and the finish is unchanged.
A decent fruity dram for warm summer evenings.
