Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Named after the Maori verb meaning ‘to mix’, RANU is a careful co-fermentation of Pinot Gris, Riesling and Gewurztraminer.
Aromas of beeswax, lemon, lime, red apple and delicate florals. On the palate, lemon sherbet, nashi pear with crisp acidity giving lovely focus. This wine shows great complexity and has wonderful texture showing the best of all three varieties, which when combined produce a really fascinating wine.
This wine fulfils our team’s ongoing love of innovation while embracing the aromatic grape varieties that we are famous for. On the 11th of April we headed into the vineyards and picked a single bin each of Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer from three different blocks.
The Pinot Gris was from the Barnsley block carefully tended by Biddy Barnsley. Located in the Waihopai valley, the clay soils and low yields provide weight and concentration.
Our only Riesling comes from our company-owned Waihopai vineyard. Viticulturist Mark Ludemann ensures the vines are kept in balance, only producing moderate crops following a light leaf-plucking that lead to a long, slow ripening period and great flavour development.
The Gewurztraminer was picked from the Woodward Vineyard just a few hundred metres down the road from the winery. Here again the clay soils produce flavoursome fruit with considerable weight and texture. The vineyard is carefully tended by Peter Woodward.
Once in the winery, the three varieties were whole-bunch pressed together and the resulting juice settled for just a few hours before being racked into old oak for fermentation. Fermentation was allowed to occur spontaneously and took several months to complete during which time there was no winemaking intervention. The wine was bottled here at the winery on the 17th of August."

Deliciously lush and dangerously drinkable
Gewürztraminer that “gets its message across not by being big and loud, but through delicate persuasion.”
