Still unfolding, the 2020 vintage (4*) was partly estate-grown at Blind River and blended with grapes from the Wairau Valley. Pale lemon/green, it is a fresh, medium to full-bodied wine, with vibrant pear, peach and lychee flavours, gentle spicy notes, balanced acidity, and very good delicacy and depth. Best drinking 2022+.
