A lovely melange of golden delicious apples and glace pineapple brushed with citrus invites exploration; delicately sweet but clean on the finish with good balancing acidity; intriguing quince and honey on the aftertaste. This will develop complexity in the next couple of years and will be worth keeping if you can resist the temptation.
