Greywacke Wild Sauvignon 2018, Marlborough

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-May-2021
Bright, pale straw-yellow with a slight green hue, even colour throughout. The bouquet is full and complex, filling the glass with aromas of citrus, lemon curd, elderflower, lemon verbena and a hint of honey, intermix subtle barrel flint and nutty notes. Medium-bodied, the palate is bright and multi-layered, nuances of lemon curd, lemon sherbet, and zest adorned by a hint of cassis, elderflower, lemon verbena, basil and honey nuance. Spices attack with tingle sensations, followed by almond danish and a dry, flinty finish. Acidity is lively yet soft; chase a slightly creamy, fine-textured, chalky phenolic line. The flavours layered harmoniously, intriguingly detailed and attractive. Match with arugula & goat's cheese ravioli and rabbit terrine over the next 5-7 years. Fruit was sourced from sites Woodbourne, Renwick and Rapaura, indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc in old French oak barriques over six months, occasional lees stirred, approx two-third MLF, aged in barrel for 1 year and further aged on lees in stainless steel for 8 months. 19+/20 pts (96 pts) May 2021 RRP $38.50
