Fruit for this wine was grown in the Wairau (predominant) and Awatere Valleys where typical warm days and cool nights provide classic flavours, intensity and definition. Vineyard selection for this wine was based on the potential of each site to produce wines which show tropical fruit flavours and generosity. The fruit was gently pressed and the juice cool fermented to retain as much flavour and aroma as possible. Lees ageing of some components prior to bottling has developed mid-palate weight adding to the wine’s intense fruit characters.

"The 2020 vintage was grown principally in the Wairau Valley. Light lemon/green, with fresh, herbaceous aromas, it is a clearly varietal style with good depth of melon and green-capsicum flavours, dry (3.5 grams/litre of residual sugar) and crisp. Good value".
