Aromas of grapefruit and lime zest, with sweet underlying passionfruit pulp. Dry with a vibrant acid tension, there is a sweet fruit character showing the classic Marlborough interplay of tropical fruits, citrus and zesty currant and guava flavors. Ripe flavors from a warm vintage, and a subtly firm structure give the potential for moderate cellaring. The initial sweet fruit character will diminish after several years, but expect pleasant drinking to at least 2022.

Opens with a grassy, herbal note, highlighting lemongrass and white pepper shadings to the core of lemon, grapefruit and green apple flavors. Shows terrific intensity, especially on the finish. Drink now. 70,000 cases made, 28,000 cases imported.

This wine is showing a lot of reduction at the moment, blanketed in yeasty, sweaty onion and salt notes. Beneath this lies vegetal notes like green bell pepper and snow pea, along with citrusy touches like lemon, lime and grapefruit. The palate is slippery, sliced through with searing acidity and crisp citrus flavors. The finish is slightly bitter.
