Grape Varieties: A select blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot & Cabernet-Franc
Growing Region: Waiheke Island, New Zealand
Owner / Chief Winemaker: Stephen White

This 2005 Larose is now starting to integrate and develop in bottle - though far from showing its true personality and voice, due to its rich and intense complexity that Stephen and his winemaking team have blended. I find it helpful for many - to open this special wine at this stage in its development and talk through the wine characters - so you are well prepared for what is too come.
