Produced in Nelson, New Zealand, Greenhough’s 2016 Hope Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is a truly exquisite wine, brimming with personality. Fragrant, restrained, and well-structured, it opens with notes of citrus zest, tropical fruits, a hint of struck match, and warm, fresh wafts of the bakery. On the palate, expect intriguing nuances of tart gooseberry, oyster shell, lemongrass, and ginger, elevated by subtle braids of that classic Sav Blanc herbal grassiness and a hint of chalk.
The texture is succulent and smooth, with a dry, crisp, and flinty finish. Greenhough’s flagship Hope Vineyard collection offers a range of elegant organic wines, characterized by premium quality fruit and innovative, sustainable winemaking methods. Their expressive Sauvignon Blanc is made from single-vineyard grapes that are hand-harvested, wild fermented in the barrel, and aged for 8 months in French oak.
100% Sauvignon Blanc. Contains Sulfites.
Frequently Asked Questions
What should I serve the 2016 Greenhough Hope Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc with?
Pair this succulent Sauvignon Blanc with some steamed artichokes and garlic aioli as a starter. Grilled asparagus with flaky sea salt will also work well. For serving with the main dish, try changing things up and serving with lighter Mexican-inspired fare with plenty of jalapenos, lime, and cilantro, and watch those zesty nuances really come to life. If that just doesn’t take your fancy, some homemade roasted garlic ravioli or creamy mushroom pasta wouldn’t go amiss.
