Greystone Organic Sauvignon Blanc 2020, North Canterbury

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 12-Nov-2021
Bright, medium yellow, even colour throughout. The wine has a ripe bouquet of fruit, packed with tropical fruit, citrus, white spice, herb and a suggestion of honey. Medium-full bodied, aromas of pineapple, lemon sherbet melded with white spice, unfolding zest and honey. The ripened fruit has vibrant acid tension. The palate is weighty with a creamy layer and fine-textured phenolics, contributed by barrel-fermentation and MLF. This is a complex Sauvignon Blanc with a tropical, citrus core and spice displaying its beauty on a creamy, textural palate. Match with savoury steamed custard and dim sum over the next 3-4 years. Wild-fermented in old French oak barrels for seven months, 95% MLF, 13.5% alc. BioGro organic certified, vegan friendly. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Nov 2021 RRP $29
