The impressive 2020 vintage (4.5*), partly estate-grown at Blind River, was blended with fruit from the lower Wairau Valley. Bright, light lemon/green, it is mouthfilling and dry, in a clearly varietal style with vibrant melon and green capsicum flavours, a slightly salty streak, fresh acidity, and excellent delicacy and length. Good value.
