Fifteen percent new oak adds creaminess without overwhelming the fruit. Apples and tangelo (honeybell) and a touch of white pepper are matched with good acids. The finish falls off quickly, but that is not unexpected at this price point. This is a pleasant weekday white. Drink it with fried catfish.
