Mahurangi River 2010 Rossanne ‘Garden Of Light’

In this episode I get to taste a little treasure from Matakana. Roussanne is not well represented in NZ. It’s traditionally from the Rhone Valley. It’s one of the six permitted white grape varieties of Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
Mahurangi River grows and makes all of their own wine. Situated 40 minutes north of Auckland, it’s a must do on any Matakana wine trail.

Jayson’s roots in wine began when his father literally dragged him round France and injected his passion into him. From the age of 8 his family took month long holidays in France travelling through all regions and sampling their wine.
UnScrewed has reinvented the concept of wine tasting in New Zealand and along the way found a new and willing audience. In addition to encouraging straightforward wine tasting, Jayson educates viewers about the effects of regional factors (soil, sun, wind) on wine flavours, and how to buy wine.
