Pale with some red/brown staining. This was lean and slightly insipid after what came before. Walnut finish.

Watery appearance, reddish-orange in colour, 20% opaque. Concentrated orange on the nose, not overly attractive but nor is it unattractive. Nice and thick texture on entry, sweet and rich orange fruit with a strong acidity providing balance and structure. Lovely burst of floral Turkish Delight on the aftertaste before a sweet strawberry jam finish takes hold and stays a good time. Enjoyable, if slightly cloying. 88/100
