Batch 2/10/22-REF-PINA

Very soft and but overtly tropical on the nose, mango and pineapple yogurt, sherbet, thyme, lime pith, and cane sugar sweetness really carry the brunt of a really pleasant aroma. The taste is really interesting, almost apertif-y, and grassy in a lot of ways akin to a Clairin maybe? But dries out significantly into Thai basil, clay, and limestone minerality. Finish lingers and is pleasantly tannic and dry.

Really interesting bottle!
