Estate-grown at Seaview, in the Awatere Valley, this wine is consistently classy. The powerful 2020 vintage (5*) was mostly lees-aged for nine months in tanks; 15 per cent of the blend was barrel-fermented. Bright, light lemon/green, it is richly fragrant and mouthfilling, with deep, vigorous tropical fruit and herbaceous flavours, showing a distinct touch of complexity, and a crisp, dry, lasting finish. Drink now-2022.
