On the surface straightforward and zesty, it combines grassy and citrus notes to great effect, while below a rich and also light sweetness provides a welcome introduction to its true complexity.

Nose: Quite floral and fragrant to begin then a leafy, salted citrus note reveals itself along with exotic fruit, think lychee, galia melon and quince. Earthy and waxy nuances here as well with a late suggestion of almond milk,cinnamon and perfumed candles.

Palate: Combines a waxy kumquot and quince element with an earthy sweetness (think porridge oats & honey) A leafy lemon balm and salted almond with green tea and cookie dough note.

Finish: Spicy wine gums, peppery oak and more earthy oatmeal and waxy orchard fruits.

Easily enjoyable as an aperitif or with oriental cuisines, this Teaninich also rewards more subtle exploration.
