From Pegasus Bay, this is a consistently good buy. Aiming for a "classic Alsatian style with a North Canterbury twist", the 2020 vintage (4*) was tank-fermented and briefly lees-aged. Pale straw, it is ripely scented and mouthfilling, with generous, ripe, peachy flavours and a slightly sweet, smooth finish. Delicious young.
