The distinctive 2018 vintage (4.5*) was grown in the Awatere Valley and at Flaxbourne, hand-picked, and fermented and matured for 11 months in oak casks (30 per cent new). Bright, light yellow/green, it is mouthfilling and dry, with generous tropical-fruit flavours, showing good complexity, and a finely textured finish.
