Very pale, almost no colour at all, pure pale orange. The nose was strange, mostly volatile shoe polish. Sweet initial impact and a much better palate than was expected. Pure tertiary flavours, with a great acidity balancing out a coffee and orange peel flavour. Actually more interesting that initial expectations. Quite thick in texture. SOme heat on the aftertaste, which changes into a long and luxuriant finish of rich orange peel. 91/100. Drunk 27 September 2010.
