Ostensibly a Central Otago producer, Rabbit Ranch sources the fruit for its Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough. The result is a lemony, grapefruity wine, with subdued herbal notes lurking in the background. It’s medium in body, with a crisp, citrusy finish. Drink now.
This medium-bodied Pinot Noir features aromas of smoke and candied fruit, then adds some mushroomy flavors and plummy notes on the palate. It’s a pleasant enough wine, one that would nicely accompany coq au vin or similar stewed dishes.
