Greenhough Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Nelson

Greenhough is located in Hope, near Nelson at the top of New Zealand’s South Island. Fruit grown on the Greenhough and Morison Vineyards (Hope). The fruit was crushed and pressed, settled to clarity and inoculated with several types of yeast. These included specific strains intended to give some of the textural and aromatic complexities associated with indigenous (wild) fermentations. Approx 4% of juice was transferred to French oak with some solids included and fermented with indigenous yeasts at warmer temperatures. This dry style Sauvignon displays ripe aromatics and intense, pungent flavors.
