Hope Vineyard Pinot Blanc 2016



Greenhough Hope Vineyard – Organic Wine – BioGro NZ Certified No.5119

750ml:      Alc 13.6%:     pH 3.42:     TA 4.9g/L:     R/S < 3 g/L

A small block of Pinot Blanc vines planted in 1976 forms the basis of this wine. At its heart are low yields and winemaking which seeks to promote a complex, generous style. A spectrum of yellow and white stone-fruits and fleshy pip fruits are imbued with secondary, savoury, spice notes from barrel fermentation, extended lees contact and partial MLF. Opulence and breadth is held in check by gentle squeeze of citrus and phenolic texture.
