Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc 2017


100% Sauvignon Blanc from prime sites in Marlborough’s Southern Valleys, the central Wairau Plains (Woodbourne, Renwick and Rapaura), and a spectacular river terrace in the upper Awatere Valley.

Fruit was picked into half-tonne bins, which were tipped directly into a tank press and lightly pressed. The resulting juice was cold-settled prior to fermentation in stainless steel, primarily using cultured yeast for cool, slow fermentation. A portion was allowed to undergo spontaneous indigenous yeast fermentation using slightly warmer temperature regimes.

Winemaker's Comments

Deliciously aromatic and highly perfumed; exuding ripe nectarine, pink grapefruit and lemon zest with a lifted floral fragrance reminiscent of jasmine and elderflower. Classic Marlborough notes, with melon and gooseberry flavours and a touch of passionfruit, wound into a generous, mouth-filling palate that finishes dry and crisp.
