A wine with a real 'Wow!' factor, the 2019 vintage (5*) is light gold and honey-sweet (146 grams/litre of residual sugar). Grown in North Canterbury and made in the classic Sauternes style, it was matured for two years in French oak barrels (50 per cent new). Fragrant, with an invitingly honeyed bouquet, it is mouthfilling, with concentrated stone-fruit and honey flavours, a slightly oily texture, and great richness and harmony. Drink now or cellar.
