The 2020 vintage (4.5*) is an excellent example of the fresh, punchy sub-regional style, with slightly riper, less herbaceous fruit characters than many. Bright, light lemon/green, it is aromatic, full-bodied and vigorous, with strong, vibrant melon, citrus and green capsicum flavours, and a crisp, dry (3.6 grams/litre of residual sugar), lingering finish. It's drinking well now.
