A grape that's fresh of the boat with promise

The country's wine list is growing. We've added a number of new grape varieties to the national vineyard over the past 10 years. That's no bad thing. There are, after all, around 10,000 of them out there, 1000 of which are known to have been made into wine somewhere in the world. Loosening our embrace with the international pacesetters (Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, et al) has been gradual, because growing new things is a risky business.
