The lively 2018 vintage (4*) is a single-vineyard wine, grown at the head of the Wairau Valley, and fermented and matured in tanks and French oak barrels. Bright, light yellow/green, with a citrusy bouquet, it has fresh, vigorous, grapefruit-like flavours, with some peachy notes, a gentle seasoning of toasty oak, and a crisp finish. Drink now-2022.
