Marshmallow, lemon oil and grilled pineapple come together on the nose here with a nicely spiced top note. Smells like ginger crisps. This is soft but not heavy on the palate, with a noticeably sweet edge. It’s subtle, adding a little marshmallow fluff to the rather fresh and nicely balanced fruits on the mid-palate. The oak plays a fairly supporting role beyond that, adding a nice, spiced note on the palate. On the finish, the sugar and spice does become a bit more dominant, though some acidity also shows up to help cleanse the palate. This is nicely done in the genre, sweet but not cloying, creamy but not shapeless, and with enough acidity to keep things interesting. 87pts
