Greystone Waipara Valley North Canterbury Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 25-Feb-2018
Full, light golden yellow colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. This has a fresh and firmly-packed nose with aromas of green stonefruits and gooseberries, along with nectarines and fresh herbs, and subtle suggestions of nut and spicy oak. The aromatics are balanced and show good intensity. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is fulsome and deep hearted with flavours of green stonefruits, nectarines and gooseberries along with fresh herbs and a little oak spice. The palate has good weight and mouthfilling presence, and the fruit is underlined by fine phenolic textures. The mouthfeel is enlivened by bright acidity lifting the herb ands florals, and the wine carries to a long and sustained finish. This is a fulsome and deep flavoured oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with green stonefruit and herb notes on a fresh, gently textured palate. Match with herb-marinated seafood and white meat dishes over the next 3+ years. Fruit fully indigenous yeast barrel-fermented, one of four barrels without settling, to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 7 months on lees in seasoned French oak. 18.5/20 Feb 2018 RRP $25.00
