Really interesting to try this with Kloof Street both from The W.O. Swartland - this was a little nicer than the Kloof Street - little more fruit melon honey spice

wax, honeycomb, under ripe pineapple right off the bat on the nose. I am intrigued. light to medium weight, ripe white peach. citrus and melon. Hinting at tangerine. Honey. cantaloupe rind. Very complex on flavor. overall soft in texture and acid. It’s not snappy but it’s far from slack. I’m sure this will develop.
