Region: Rapaura, Wairua Plains, Marlborough, New Zealand.
Tasting Notes: A warm, wet year brought high yields with some botrytize. Hand-harvested, whole bunch pressed, and fermented in French oak with 30% being new barrels. Hints of apricot, tomato leaf and blackcurrant on the nose with tannin pith.
Winemaker: Allan McWilliams.
