Full of personality, the 2020 vintage (4.5*) was grown mostly in the Bellbird Springs vineyard, at Waipara. Pinot Gris-based, with small amounts of Muscat, Riesling and Gewürztraminer, it was fermented in various vessels, including barrels and amphorae, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Apricot-coloured, it is already drinking well, with a touch of tannin and lively, concentrated stone-fruit and spice flavours.
