The Mosel-like, finely poised 2019 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown and hand-picked at Waipara, in North Canterbury. Lemon-scented, it is light-bodied and gently sweet (40 grams/litre of residual sugar), with very good intensity of lemony, slightly appley flavours and firm acid spine. Drink now or cellar. The 2020 vintage (4.5*) is also highly attractive and very harmonious. Bright, light lemon/green, it is light to medium-bodied, with rich, ripe, peachy, vaguely appley and honeyed flavours, gentle sweetness (26 grams/litre of residual sugar), lively acidity and a long finish. (From Waipara Hills).
