From certified organic vineyards 2020 was one of the best vintages Marlborough has experienced in recent years. A portion of the wine was fermented using indigenous yeasts with aging taking place in stainless steel tanks for 4 months. Brilliant water like colour with a light tinge of green around the edges. An intense mixture of gooseberry, passionfruit and grapefruit scents leap out of the glass with trailing herbaceous asparagus, green apple and grassy gun flint like notes. Racy and possessing terrific concentration, mouth watering flavours of passionfruit, citrus and herbaceous gooseberries burst across the palate. Finishes with elements of green apple, a subtle grassiness and a flinty mineral edge. Fresh, crunchy acidity concluding long and powerful. Outstanding.
