Offering good value, the 2020 vintage (4*) was fermented and lees-aged for a year in French oak barrels (20 per cent new). Bright, light lemon/green, it is a powerful wine, full-bodied, with generous, ripe stonefruit flavours, and buttery and toasty notes adding complexity. A 'full-on' style, it's a drink-now or cellaring proposition.
