2022 Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
Winemaker Notes: Aromas of cassis and passionfruit are first to emerge, with guava, crisp pear and white peach adding a delicious intricacy. On the palate, it is generous yet refreshing, with ripe pineapple and a lime sherbet zing, layered with elderflower and hints of citrus blossom. A classic example of Greywacke’s interpretation of the famous Marlborough style - ripe, textural and scrumptious, with the volume turned well down.
Wine Spectator - "'To be honest, not a huge amount has changed since I first made Sauvignon Blanc in Marlborough,' says Greywacke founder Kevin Judd, who has been making wine in the region since the mid 1980s. His focus is on optimizing canopy management and yields to achieve solid ripeness (and steer away from underripe and green characteristics). With winemaker Richelle Tyney, Judd continues to raise the quality bar for the category. Part of their strategy is to lightly press the grapes to yield a modest volume of best-quality juice, the majority fermented in stainless steel tanks with cultured yeast, with a portion of the juice spontaneously fermenting with indigenous yeast in old oak barrels before it’s all blended together."
