SMWS 71.46 - Youthful cockinessThe nose has greenhouses, tree bark, banana, and hints of lemon. The mouthfeel is thin with no cling. The body has ginger, sultanas and cinnamon. The finish is very short, with hints of ginger and lemons.

Water brings out thin, short lived whorling that dissipates quickly. The nose gains hints of tobacco and loses the tree bark and banana. The body gains more lemon. The finish is unchanged.

A very interesting addition to a spring picnic.
