Designed as an "upfront, in-your-face drop", the 2021 vintage (4.5*) was grown at sites in the lower Wairau, Awatere and Southern valleys. Bright, light lemon/green, it is highly aromatic, with strong, vigorous, tropical fruit and herbaceous flavours, dry (2.2 grams/litre of residual sugar) and crisp. A 'full-on' style, it's Marlborough in a glass.
