Pale, bright yellow. The aromas of lemon, tarragon, pepper and flowers suggest an intense wine. Then dense, nicely concentrated and quite dry, with hints of lemon, crushed stone and licorice. Offers good mid-palate texture but could use more length.

WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES
The Rarangi vineyard in the Lower Wairau Valley is noted by its maritime influence in denser soils resulting in forward aromatics with a boxwood and straw characteristics in finished wines. The site in the Wairau Plains is a stony, low-vigor vineyard growing grapes contributing bold stone fruit character. The third vineyard for Rain is Ben Morven, one of the north-facing vineyards in the Southern Valleys. This site is planted mostly on alluvial soils with a higher proportion of clay moving up the surrounding hills. Grapes from this vineyard have notably tropical aromas such as pineapple and passionfruit.
