This is intoxicating on the nose, with scents of dried rose petals, lychees and white peppercorns. Dry in style, yet luscious on the palate, it has concentrated flavors of rose petal jam and grapefruit that are balanced by moderate alcohol and a brisk, lemony acidity. This is pleasantly bitter, with notes of jasmine tea and lemon pith. Drink now.
