Kukupa, Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2019

Producer Profile

Viticulture

All of the fruit comes from the single Kerseley estate vineyard from vines planted between 1991 and 2008. Grown on a VSP trellis system, the vineyards are in the Dillons point area around half a mile from the sea.

Winemaking

Fermentation in stainless tank at low temperature with natural yeasts to ensure the single site is expressed in the wine.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment

Tasting Note

New Zealand's Kukupa (Hemiphaga novaeseelandiae) enjoys a reputation for over indulging on fermenting berries, rendering it somewhat incapable of flight. It is the bon viveur of the avian world. Deliciously crips, aromatic white wine which overflows with gooseberry, guava and citrus flavours.

Food Matching

Grilled fish, Asian style seafood, even Thai!
