From an Onetangi-based producer, the youthful 2020 vintage (5*) is rare – only 650 bottles were made. Hand-picked and barrel-fermented (50 per cent new oak), it is light lemon/green, with a fragrant, slightly smoky bouquet. Mouthfilling and vibrantly fruity, it has peachy, slightly toasty flavours, showing excellent concentration, vigour and complexity, balanced acidity and a tightly structured finish. Best drinking 2023+.
