''This is by far my favourite rose, so fresh and mouth-watering. The intensely flowery bouquet is followed by a palate crammed with strawberry and dried flower flavours, then a joyous finish."James Halliday
Tasting Note: Pale and bright pink colour adorned with warm glints of gold. Subtle aroma leading to an elegant, delicate bouquet of fine notes of red fruits and zest of citrus fruits. Light, elegant flavour, followed by a fresh finish with a taste of raspberry.
