Have a look near the bottom of the rear window, each side of the car there is a strip of bitumen (painted ) used to seal the gaps during production. Sometimes at the top end of the bitumen strip, there is a gap where it hasnt quite sealed. Water can enter the boot through this gap.
Dealer should fix under warranty, but it really only needs some body sealer, or neutral cure silicone (dont use acetic cure (smells like vinegar) because it promotes corrosion)
