Green Glow Skin Fermented Sauvignon Blanc is an amazing, and different, style of Sauvignon made by leaving the wine in contact with the skins during fermentation to extract maximum flavour, texture and colour.
Green Glow is 100% skin-fermented Sauvignon Blanc. We believe that Green Glow 2013 was New Zealand’s first skin-fermented Sauvignon Blanc and the style provides a really interesting and friendly wine.
“Well, this is a bit different. Bottled under a beer bottle-style crown cap, it’s low sulphur, certified organic and made with full skin contact. A relatively deep yellow/green colour and lightly nutty, lightly oxidised character showing a touch of yeastiness, with the more orthodox Sauvignon flavours coming through, punchy and tinged with a tropical tinge on the palate, and a fine, natural, unforced freshness and acid punch to the finish. A very interesting take on Kiwi Sauvignon, but this supernatural is not too scary”.
Oh, and the label glows in the dark.
Superb with goat’s cheese tart.
