Certified organic, the 2020 vintage (4.5*) is a single-vineyard wine, partly (35 per cent) fermented in seasoned French oak puncheons. Bright, light yellow/green, it is medium to full-bodied, with strong, ripe tropical-fruit flavours, showing a distinct touch of complexity, and a dry finish. Drink now or cellar. The 2019 vintage (4.5*), harvested from 20-year-old vines, was also partly (35 per cent) barrel-fermented. Ripely scented, it is a fresh and lively, medium to full-bodied wine, with ripe, non-herbaceous flavours, showing excellent vigour and intensity.
