Light honey, lemon peel, candied orange peel, some bright golden apple notes. Light, bright, and sweet aroma. Palate: Smooth but quite dry. Crisp. Caramel apple, orange blossom honey, warm notes of hard apple cider. Very elegant. The dryness does not come off rough, like a young blend, but instead dries the mouth and tingles the palate
