This very special rare wine, from a very good Waiheke Island vintage, was released in November 2016 after 3 1/2 years of cellar ageing. It has many years of cellaring potential ahead, but is drinking very well already.
It is the only wine type made by Jurassic Ridge that has a 'tinge of corruption'! By that we mean it is not our usual 100% pure single varietal, but a blend with just a few percent of another grape included. These grape varieties will forever remain a secret (segreto), unless when you taste one you might be able to guess the blend correctly and receive a surprise reward. Only one submission per person!
The voluptuous silky tannins and amazing unusual delicious tantalising fruitiness on the palate plus the long lingering soft tannin finish, will surprise and delight.
Production was limited to just a very few magnums, so if you are lucky you will have something truly unique to try for Christmas or perhaps that very special party.
