This vivacious Marlborough blend of Pinot Noir (57%) Chardonnay (34%) and Pinot Meunier (9%) was disgorged after over four years on it yeast lees. Bright, light lemon/green, it is fragrant, with concentrated, citrusy, peachy flavours, yeasty and biscuity notes adding complexity, and a very harmonious, lingering finish.
