Ben says

★★★ Outstanding Wine Lime gold and long notes. Aromas of lime peel, orange peel, Turkish delight and lime leaf. Lemon and mint. Palate starts waxy before flowing into a creamy mix of mint, soft green apple, fresh lemon, citrus rind. Truly memorable – and not just because I was sipping it on the Positano coastline.”
