Offering terrific value, the 2020 vintage (5*) from Pegasus Bay was fermented with indigenous yeasts in old oak puncheons and then barrel-aged for three months. Pale gold, it is an invitingly perfumed, powerful, weighty wine with strong, peachy, spicy, slightly gingery flavours, showing a distinct touch of complexity. A slightly sweet style (18 grams/litre of residual sugar), it has low acidity, giving it a seductively soft finish. Already delicious, it's ready to roll.
