In a nutshell:
A star wine of Greywacke's portfolio, this is an intensely complex, oak aged New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
This wine is possibly the pride of winemaker Kevin Judd's Greywacke range. The fruit is sourced from a range of prime sites across the Marlborough area which, after settling, underwent spontaneous fermentation using wild yeasts in French oak barriques where remained it on its lees for well over six months. It has aromas of shortbread, quinces and apricots, lemon zest and ginger, honeysuckle and vanilla bean and a delicious, sweet-scented fragrance of ripe fruit and Asian spices. It's both delicate and textured with a rich, succulent palate that finishes crisp and long with a flinty dryness.
When to drink:
A different, but very rewarding style of Sauvignon Blanc. It will partner asian cuisine and shellfish recipes really well.
