Hazy bright coral color. Aromas of raspberry smoothie, strawberry-lemon sorbet, and cherry tomatoes with a satiny, crisp, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a polished, medium-length watermelon granita, peach topping, and white pepper finish. A solid fruity spritzer with wide appeal beyond Mead lovers.
