Maturing well, the 2018 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown at Blind River, in the Awatere Valley, and handled entirely in stainless steel tanks. Bright, light lemon/green, it is a characterful wine, full-bodied, with excellent depth of vibrant, peachy, spicy flavours, finely balanced acidity and a dry finish. Drink now or cellar.
