The source of Infamous Goose Sauvignon Blanc 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 grapes are picked at optimal ripeness, destemmed, and the free-run juice is cool-fermented in stainless steel tanks. Three months of aging on the lees and in stainless steel tanks provides body and complexity to the wine, before blending, fining, filtering and bottling.

Harvest Note
This harvest was very cool, with a wet spring resulting in low crops. Following the spring, Marlborough experienced perfect weather during ripening. Wines are energetic and flavorful.
Tasting Note
Pale lime to pale straw. An abundance of tropical fruit, including passionfruit pulp and honeydew, leap from the glass. The palate is as succulent as it is fresh—a fantastic reminder of the sheer enjoyment and liveliness this region can produce.
Food Pairing
Pair with ceviche, fresh oysters and wild rice salad.
