Tasting notes by Simon Staffler and Othmar Kiem.
Light amber colour. Round and decisive taste, reminding of the Sacher cake, chocolate and lots of apricot marmalade. On the palate it is dense and soft, even here we find the apricot jam, a delicate, balanced and rich sweetness, lasting long on the palate.
Light straw yellow with a light golden touch. Fragrant bouquet of tabled-white grape, nutmeg, banana, very flowery, reminding of white rose and the freshness of a strawberry. Slightly balmy in the mouth with a vegetable touch, dense , it spreads evenly, long aftertaste, sweetish.
