Raparua Marlborough

Winemaker – Inus Van Der Westhuizen

Minimal intervention and organic mulch

Black Star Wines are made by Inus van der Westhuizen in the Marlborough region of New Zealand. South African born, Inus grew up on a wine farm in the Western Cape. He gained a Diploma in Cellar Technology at Elsenberg Agricultural College in Stellenbosch where he then went on to work as an assistant winemaker for 5 years. Inus then went to work in Pflaz in Germany for a harvest before moving with his wife to New Zealand.

The fruit is sourced from premium estate vineyards near the town of Blenheim and is handled minimally to preserve as much pristine flavour as possible.

The wine provides amazing fruit quality with texture and longevity. Designed to go with a versatile variety of cuisine where modern tastes can cover all flavours.
