Thistle Ridge North Canterbury Sauvignon Blanc 2017

03-Aug-2018

Thistle Ridge is a brand for the Thomas family who own Greystone and Muddy Water in North Canterbury. The fruit for the Thistle Ridge wines come from limestone soil influenced vineyards that were originally covered with thistles. Though seen as a secondary brand, the wines have seen success at wine judging competitions, indicating the quality of the fruit and the competent winemaking. Here, I review the 2017 Thistle Ridge Sauvignon Blanc, from a vintage which gave two tropical cyclones just before harvest. Once passed, the weather dried up to enable a harvest in conditions without rain. www.greystonewines.co.nz
