In the crowded world of wine, New Zealand is paradise for Sauvignon Blanc and Marlborough sits at the heart of it all. The abundant sunshine, low rainfall, cool nights and long growing seasons, all contribute to the vibrant, zesty fruit flavours which make wines from this corner of the world so distinctive. The fruit is the focus of Crowded House, sourcing the finest possible from dedicated growers is fundamental. Marlborough's best vineyards form the foundations for Crowded House, a Sauvignon Blanc that's generous and in perfect balance.
Crowded House is all about taking a fresh new look at the established New Zealand style. Marlborough's vineyards yield wines with good length and a smorgasbord of fruit characters. The vines are picked batch by batch, to their own individual timetable. Early picking delivers fruit with higher acidity and wonderful citrus characters. Voluptuous, richly developed expressions are typical of riper, later picked grapes. Crowded House is well rehearsed at taking full advantage of the unique opportunitities presented each season. Parcels are individually vinified, inoculated with a variety of yeasts, held on sedimentery lees for two months to add richness and assembled unoaked into a vibrant, fruit forward styling.
TASTING NOTES
Pale lemon straw colour. A bouquet of tropical ripe passionfruit, pineapple and mango with a hint of lemon. Showing loads of summery tropical flavours, the palate is soft and refreshing with an initial explosion of ripe tropical notes, followed by a hint of mineral flint and freshly cut grass. This approachable and balanced wine finishes with a lovely clean zestiness.
