A delightful frothy mouse, and superb vivid pink colour with delicious summer berry flavours.
Weighty and structured, delivering on the promise of a bready, savoury mix with stone fruit pastry.
Crunchy green apple, citrus zest with light creamy waves and a touch of creamy lemon posset.

A sumptuous mixture of ripe stone fruit and crisp orchard and citrus fruits, while the 13.5% ABV brings a glamorous richness.
Packed full of crunchy green orchard fruit, with crisp apples and greengage, and hints of white pepper and lemon.
Crisp, taut crunchy apples and zesty flavours, then a lightly peachy weight that leads to a lengthy finish.
