    A pleasantly brisk, medium-bodied cup which starts with a vibrant green texture interlaced with notes of unripe tree fruit, similar to raw guava. These flavors resonate throughout the length and define the character of the cup. Delectable notes of honeydew melon are discernible around the edges which ebb to reveal subtle nutty nuances akin to fresh hazelnuts towards the finish.
