Dancing Petrel Paewhenua Island Northland Arneis (2020)

Full of personality, the youthful 2020 vintage (4.5*) was grown in the Far North and fermented with indigenous yeasts. Bright, light lemon/green, it is full-bodied and fleshy, with good vigour and intensity of citrusy, slightly peachy and spicy flavours, fresh, dry and lively. Best drinking mid-2021+.
