Tried this again. Clear golden straw yellow color.  Aromas of stone and tropical fruits, with oak present. The palate shows Apple peach and pear with lemony nuances and heavy toasty oak. Medium finish. Not as good as previously. Tasting Sample.

Full bodied, with green apple, lemon, mango and pineapple fruit, and vanilla. Good length and integration of oak.
