Greystone Organic Sauvignon Blanc 2023, North Canterbury

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 14-Feb-2024
Bright, even, pale yellow. The nose is softly full, with tropical fruit, citrus, subtle herbs aromas and yeasty richness. Full-bodied, mango and pineapple aromas entwined with lime, dried herbs, toast and delicate spice. The wine is powerful with ripe fruit and dried herbs, layered by barrel fermentation complexity. Fine-textured phenolics add an opulent mouthfeel, along with enlivening acidity persists a serious, lengthy finish. This textural Sauvignon Blanc shows a tropical fruit core with barrel-fermentation complexity, lending a lengthy, powerful finish. Match with baked fish and goat's cheese ravioli over the next 3-5 years. Clones 376, 530 (Loire) and MS, fermented in old French oak barrels with wild yeast over 7 months, underwent MLF, unfined. 13.6% alc. Organic certified. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Feb 2024 RRP $32
