Intro: A 750ml corked and caged bottle, 2018 vintage, bottle no. 1193, with a best before date of 15th August 2028. Poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass.
Appearance: A very nice hazy golden colour with a two finger white head that had decent retention, but left only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Tart, apricot, stone of the stone fruit, rhubarb, green apple, floral, with light oaky and funky notes.
Taste: Lightly sour, tart, apricot, sour stone fruit gummy candy, rhubarb, floral, and a touch of lemon.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: One of my favourites from De Cam. The aroma and flavours just work well for my palate, and it was just so refreshing and easy to drink.
