Infamous Goose Sauvignon Blanc 2016
The Infamous Goose is made from vineyards in Marlborough’s Wairau River Valley, where stony, sandy loam topsoil covers deep layers of free-draining shingle. This low-fertility soil reduces vigor, yielding lush, aromatic, ripe fruit. The fruit is picked at optimal ripeness and de-stemmed and the free-run juice is cool-fermented in stainless steel tanks. Aging on the lees, also in stainless steel tanks, provides body and complexity before blending, fining, filtering and bottling. The wine has fresh aromas and flavors of nectarine, peach and gooseberry followed by fresh acidity and a clean finish. Pair with fish, shellfish, salads and white meats.
