The Infamous Goose from Kobrand Wine and Spirits

We received a sample in exchange for a honest an unbiased review.

We had the opportunity to facilitate a review for a bottle of wine from Kobrand Wine and SpiritsKobrand called The Infamous Goose Sauvignon Blanc .

Sauvignon Blanc is a rich lovely fruit core of citrus and apple, balanced with fine acidity for a soft yet pleasantly dry finish. A pale lemon straw with a green hue, and a fresh aroma of fresh green herbs, white peach, blackcurrant bush and wet river stones. The wine is paired great with fresh white fish, salads and white meats and shellfish.

The source of Infamous Goose Sauvignon Blanc is Marlborough’s Wairau River Valley, where stony, sandy loam topsoil covers deep layers of free-draining shingle. This low-fertility soil reduces vigor, yielding lush, aromatic, ripe fruit. The grapes are picked at optimal ripeness, destemmed, and the free-run juice is cool-fermented in stainless steel tanks. Three months of aging on the lees and in stainless steel tanks provides body and complexity to the wine, before blending, fining, filtering and bottling. The weather conditions that were predicted for 2015-2016 growing season caused many to fear that it would be the worst harvest. However, conditions were mild across the spring followed by warm rains in January. This resulted in the largest berry wieghts on record for Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc at harvest time.

  1. Sauvignon Blanc is another of the wines that I will sometimes drink! I really try to stay away from red or blush wines--for some readon I just don't like them. Just give me a white wine anytime and I am a happy camper!
