Greystone Waipara Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 11-Feb-2016
Full, straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, paler on the rim. This has a firm and solidly concentrated nose of ripe nectarines, greengages and green stonefruits entwined with spicy herb and nutty elements. The aromatics build in depth and intensity in the glass. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, fresh and succulent green stonefruit and nectarine flavours form a strong and positive core, unfolding layers of herbs, spices, tropical fruits and lantana. The mouthfeel is bright and energetic with fresh, lacy acidity providing drive and lending poise and tension. The palate leads to a rich, concentrated and lingering finish of stonefruits and spicy herbs. This is a rich, succulent and refreshing oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with complex green stonefruit flavours and an energetic line. Serve with herb-marinated poultry and pork dishes over the next 3 years. Clone 376 and 530 fruit from the centre of the ‘Greystone’ vineyard, indigenous yeast fermented in French oak to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 4 months on lees in barrel with partial MLF. 2,537 cases made. 18.5+/20 Feb 2016 RRP $22.00
