Almost crystal clear in the glass, this bottling is loaded with passionfruit, lime candy and white flower aromas, proving quite fresh and inviting. The flavors start a tad sour, recalling squeezed lime, but then open into tropical notes like honeydew and passionfruit. A perfect party-starting apéritif, with both style and substance.
