Description

Greywacke Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand, 2022     

Grape: 100% Sauvignon Blanc, a portion of the juice was allowed to undergo spontaneous indigenous yeast fermentation in old oak barrels. 

Made with grapes from Marlborough's Southern Valleys (clay-loam soils) and the central Wairau Plains (greywacke river stones).

A delightful fusion of ripe summer fruit and delicate floral perfume – Golden Queen peaches and poached yellow pears; baked apples, mango and rock melon; mingled with apple blossom fragrance and a twist of lemon sherbet. Succulent and crisp, with a delicate fennel-like herbal quality and a dry, textural palate. Quintessentially Marlborough, but a deliciously subtle, ripe interpretation of the classic style.

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"Complex, characterful, yet understated bouquet with subtle aromas of gooseberry, grapefruit, passionfruit, wet stones and bouquet garni with flinty, smoky, struck-match complexity. An elegant, taut, well-defined, mineral style with complexity, and a fine, flinty, saline finish. It has a stamp of 'class' about it."

95/100 points, New Zealand Wine Rater, October 2022

"The 2022 Sauvignon Blanc is incredibly aromatic, and while the Greywacke wines have a proven track record of aging potential, there's nothing quite like the vibrancy of youth. On the nose, there is tatami mat, sesame, a hint of tahini, passionfruit, pineapple, green apple, yuzu and brine. In the mouth, the wine is concentrated and pleasurable—this is Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc in its best light, in my opinion. It’s saturated with flavor, fine phenolic structure and loads of personality. It even manages a tiny bit of restraint. Great." Drink 2023 - 2032

94/100 points, Erin Larkin, WINE ADVOCATE, November 2023

Also ranked at #10 (95/100 points) in Wine Spectator "Top 100" - Most exciting wines of 2023!
