The 2020 vintage (4.5*) was grown in the Awatere and Wairau valleys and partly (10 per cent) fermented in old oak barrels. Bright, light lemon/green, it is a medium to full-bodied, very fresh and lively wine, with finely balanced acidity and good intensity of ripely herbaceous flavours, showing considerable complexity. Best drinking mid-2021+.
