Getting better with time
Meerea Park winemaker Rhys Eather is a man who likes to make you wait. It’s not discourteous, he just wants to give his flagship Alexander Munro wines bottle age, besides not producing them in years when they don’t pass tough quality tests. That philosophy shows in four wines which have just arrived on my tasting bench. We have two first-release Munro wines from the 2011 vintage, which Rhys rates almost as highly as 2014.
