Mystery red-wine grape grown in a single Wairarapa (N.Z) region vineyard and designated as an unknown ID after examination by ampelographers and subjection to some DNA testing. Initially believed to be, and planted as, the variety Shiraz. Has some characteristics that suggest a relationship to Trousseau (Noir). Creates a dark, brambly red wine that is very ripe, warm and powerful in style.
