Summary: Scottish for a “good get-together”, Hootenanny was created by two men with a love of New Zealand’s southern island and a respect for its strong Scottish heritage to bring some colour and excitement to Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Hootenanny is a simple formula done well, sourced from established vineyards in the right areas and made specifically for Hootenanny in a elegant, fresh style that celebrates the world famous Marlborough style.
Winemaking: Sourced from lower-yielding vineyards on the hillside slopes for greater intensity and whole bunch pressed. Fermentation is in stainless steel tanks with minimal oxygen interaction to maximise fruit expression. Following fermentation the wine is aged in tank on lees for four months with malolactic fermentation avoided.
2019 Vintage: 2019 was characterised by high sunshine and low rainfall providing perfect conditions for the grapes and the hallmarks of a great vintage. Unlike a couple of previous vintages conditions were right and the process of picking grapes was unhurried due to threats of rainfall or vineyard disease. Wines from this vintage should be excellent across the board.
Tasting Note: Pale in colour with striking green highlights. The nose is fresh and vibrantly aromatic with unmistakably Marlborough aromas of gooseberry and freshly grown grass.The palate is crisp and fresh with an energetic punch of lime, citrus and passionfruit flavours carried to a long dry finish accentuated by a fine acid backbone. Perfect with a Goat’s cheese salad.
