This is a delicate and fragrant dark chocolate crafted in New Zealand by Hogarth.
As the name suggests, the chocolate’s pale colour make it look more like a milk than a dark bar. The beautifully molded bar has smooth texture and a slightly soft snap that immediately release an irresistible aroma. Sweet notes of vanilla, honey and caramel melt into each other. A haze of aromatic honeysuckle and jasmine create a delicious floral dimension that compliments notes of ripe apricot.
The fruits and blossom mix with one another, creating a sugared fragrance that puts us in mind of a perfect summer’s day.
The chocolate’s unusual pallor comes from the Peruvian Criollo beans that Hogarth has used. One of the rarest cacao varietals, the small white beans are notoriously hard to grow and extremely susceptible to disease. Only a few places in the world still cultivate predominantly Criollo cacao.
The Piura region of North West Peru is renowned for its fine-flavour cacao. Hogarth buys its beans directly from the Norandino Cooperative in Peru. This cooperative is an association of small-holder farmers who are dedicated to not just producing high quality cacao, but improving the quality of life of its memembers.
This bar achieved a Silver at the Academy of Chocolate Awards 2017.
