While steely in acidity, this wine offers a counterbalance of fleshy pineapple and mango flavors. It finds a balance between both sides of the equation and also shows great integration with the oak.

Pure and clean, with a peachy, light toasty oak character that keeps the flavors fresh, lively and complex, lingering on the aftertaste. Drink now through 2020. 24,000 cases made.
