d'Arenberg The Hermit Crab

The nose has characteristic of stone fruits such as apricots, peaches and nectarines as well as the ever present sweet spice nuances. The palate has a lovely fruit weight and is packed with complexity. It opens with stone fruits and citrus and is underpinned by candied ginger and clove spice. The palate builds nicely with a linear citrus acidity running throughout. The flavours linger with a savoury edge of pistachio nut and a twist of flowery fruit tannins adding textural interest.
