The finely poised, youthful 2021 vintage (5*) is a single-vineyard wine, grown at Dillons Point, in the lower Wairau Valley, and handled entirely in stainless steel tanks. Riper and more subtle than many of the district's wines, it is freshly aromatic and full-bodied, with strong, vigorous, tropical fruit flavours to the fore, gentle herbal and salty notes, lively acidity, and a dry (2.5 grams/litre of residual sugar), lingering finish.
