Greenhough Hope Vineyard – Organic Wine – BioGro NZ Certified No.5119
750ml: Alc 12.0%: pH 3.0: TA 6.8g/L: R/S 11.5g/L
The Hope style is dryish to tasted and medium-bodied with mouthwatering finesse. Stop fermented to retain enough residual sweetness to off-set low pH and a delicate citrus aromatic and flavour profile. Within are flavours of limes, apples and white-fleshed fruits and developing savoury detail. This is a complex, layered wine which balances mid-palate succulence with finely- textured energy. Still youthful, there is also a hint of toasty bottle age beginning to show.
