About This Wine

All components were kept on yeast lees as long as possible until blending, adding greater flavour and softness. Typical aromas of tropical fruit, passionfruit and lime show through on the nose. It has great minerality and drinkability due to the freshness on the palate. The tropical fruits continue on in the mouth with hints of melon and citrus which adds great length of flavour.

New Zealand's climate is perfect for producing crisp, aromatic wines - the long summer days and cool nights provide ideal conditions which preserve purity and freshness. Little Goat Creek wines epitomise these factors: wines packed with flavour and showing great expression of variety. The grapes are sourced from organic vineyards in the Wairau Valley of Marlborough. These grapes build up a natural resistance to the elements. The skins become thicker producing more flavour.

Wines of Marlborough

Marlborough is at the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island and is the leading region in the country, being responsible for 75% of NZ’s wine production and 85% of its exports. Marlborough is internationally renowned for its distinctive style of Sauvignon Blanc, described by some wine writers such as Oz Clarke and George Taber as the best in the world. Australia being such a close neighbour, we get a great number of brands imported into the country.

Sauvignon Blanc in Marlborough is grown on well-draining alluvial gravels, with large temperature fluctuations between day and night. These conditions are great for growing grapes that strike a perfect balance between ripeness and acidity. The result is sauvignon blanc that is aromatic, driven by tropical fruit flavours but also supported by an herbaceous and mineral character. Aussies often described Marlborough Savvy Blanc as full of passionfruit flavour.

Despite many consumers having an idea of what Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is, the wine is actually made in a wide range of different styles. Wine makers take advantage of different clones, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to give their wines nuance and differentiate their brand from one another. You may have had sauvignon blanc from Marlborough before, but it is always worth exploring some not so commercial brands if it is a style you enjoy.

Other varieties that are produced in the region include Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris.
