This really needs the oak to integrate. Right now I found oak to be strong on the nose and palate.

Floral bouquet, apples and honeysuckle.
Good acidity. Has a hint of oak.

Wonderful blend of light fruits: peaches, pears, apples. Minimal oak leads to a wonderful summer wine

Really out of balance. Oak bomb up front, then weird acidity.

Very enjoyable. Granny Smith apple on top of a tropical but not overly sweet palate. Need another year or 2 and will score 2-3 points higher.
