Cicada Marlborough Gewürztraminer (2020)

The attractive, easy-drinking 2020 vintage (4*) was produced by Riverby Estate, in the Wairau Valley, but was not estate-grown. Bright, light lemon/green, it is mouthfilling and youthful, with peach, lychee and spice flavours, showing very good freshness, delicacy and depth, a slightly oily texture, and an off-dry (7 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Best drinking mid-2022+.
