Brilliant straw yellow in hue, the nose is marked by ripe peach, mango, golden apple, lime, honeysuckle and bay leaf. Gorgeous entry unfolds into flavors of stone fruits and plush tropical fruits. The mouthfeel is smooth, the acidity mature and a touch of sweet oak contributes to its depth and complexity.
