Named after the Maori verb meaning ‘to mix’, RANU is a careful co-fermentation of Pinot Gris, Riesling and Gewürztraminer.
This is an intriguing wine that is rather chameleon-like revealing different aspects each time it is enjoyed. Riesling definitely makes its presence felt with firm lemon and lime flavours while the Pinot Gris adds red apple and stonefruit along with a rounded textural element. The Gewurztraminer provides florals and spice. Overall this is a delightfully fragrant wine with a fleshy, succulent mid-palate that finishes with dry crisp acidity.
Enjoy now or for the next three or so years.
Spicy foods, especially Thai flavours and coconut-based curries, also pates and terrines, salmon, chicken and pork dishes.
