Lake Chalice Marlborough Riesling (2020)

The vigorous 2020 vintage (4*) is a finely poised, single-vineyard wine, harvested early to achieve a low alcohol style (10 per cent alcohol by volume). Tangy, tightly structured and gently sweet, it is light and lively, with strong, lemony, appley flavours. A medium style, it should break into full stride mid-2022+.
