The source of the grapes for Infamous Goose is 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 destemmed 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.
