A layered aroma jumps from the glass, defined by tropical guava and papaya complimented with pineapple cake, grapefruit, and lemon tart. A floral honeysuckle accent adds complexity to the fruit-driven bouquet. Crisp flavors of green apple and pear transition into a full-bodied mid-palate rich with lemon curd, apricot, and honeydew. Balanced acid keeps the mouthfeel juicy through the finish while a supple volume is found throughout.
