Greywacke ‘Wild Sauvignon’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 02-Oct-2017
Pale straw colour with slight green hues. The nose is very elegant and fine, quite tightly bound, with aromatic and green stonefruit notes, along with herbs and florals, with some ripe fruit elements and subtle flinty funkiness. On palate this is fresh and lively with good intensity of ripe stonefruits and a range of herb notes. Very elegant in proportion with fine textures and bright acidity. A youthful wine. 18.5+/20 Sep 2017 RRP $37.85 Very pale straw, near colourless. The nose is fresh and youthful with near exuberant and rich green stonefruit aromas of nectarines and greengages with notes of ripe capsicums and fresh herbs, unfolding a hint of smoke and nuttiness. The aromatics grow in fullness and depth with aeration. Dry to taste, very vibrantly sweet and rich in fruit, with juicy greengage, nectarine and green stonefruits. Complex detail emerges, nuts and oak? But quite subtle, with hints of creaminess. This has a tight, concentrated core and refined phenolic line. So youthful, but individual and with complexing nuances already. Fully barrel-fermented, with 7% new oak, minimal lees work, but two-thirds MLF. 19.0-/20 Jul 2017 RRP $37.85
