Cotton candy, banana custard, sherbert, and confected sugary notes are pungent up front.
In the mouth the fruit leans tropical with kiwi and pineapple, before an explosion of earthy clay and passion fruit pastry cream expand over the palate. The complexities keep unfolding in the mouth with a texture that straddles smooth and spice laden. An absolute pleasure to sip and engage with.
