The deliciously harmonious 2020 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown at Grovetown, in the lower Wairau Valley, partly hand-picked, and stop-fermented to produce a distinctly medium style (44 grams/litre of residual sugar). Light lemon/green, it is freshly scented and light-bodied, with ripe, citrusy, peachy flavours, showing excellent delicacy and vigour, gentle sweetness, lively acidity and loads of current-drinking appeal.
