A very inviting pale yellow tinged with green: the Big Fine Girl is mouth-watering just to look at.
And it has a really generous and enormously appealing nose – there’s an absolute torrent of gorgeous ripe pear backed by lemon, lime and floral notes. And there’s some more exotic and tropical fruits too.
On the palate this is a fabulously rich and generous Big Fine Girl, clearly enjoying living up to her name. The acid that gives zest, vivacity and freshness is so beautifully integrated and entwined in the fruit that it’s virtually unnoticeable.
Utterly delicious on its own but oysters, salmon (and other fish), sashimi, salads with zesty vinaigrettes, spicy Asian dishes, and creamy pastas would all be lovely.
