Judges Comments:

From the stony Rapaura region in Marlborough, these grapes benefit from the reflected light off the pale coloured stones beneath the vines, improving the ripening stage. These were among the early vineyard sites in Marlborough’s 50-year grape growing industry and selected by the early pioneers, the Yukich brothers, Mate and Frank. Beautifully made with floral and grapefruit aromas, the palate sings of lime peel and gala apple flavours with sweetness and balancing vibrant acidity.

Pairing Recommendation:

Delicate and often floral in character, a great match to Asian inspired foods, antipasti and pre-dinner nibbles, as well as chips and dips. Perfect with a light lunch, picnic, cheeseboard, Mexican dishes and coconut-based curry sauces.
