Greywacke Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Greywacke Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Greywacke Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc – A refreshing sorbet-like medley of fresh lychee, grapefruit and honeydew melon laced with flinty minerality and finished with an infusion of mandarin and lime zest. A lively, invigorating wine with persistent grapefruit flavours and a steely blackcurrant tang. Crisp with a long, enduring finish.

 

Producer: Colour: WhiteGrape: New ZealandRegion: New Zealand, MarlboroughAlcohol: 13.5%Vintage: 2017Grape Details: Sauvignon BlancVinification: Sauvignon Blanc was harvested during the cool (often cold) conditions of night. The grapes were pressed relatively lightly and the resulting juice was cold settled prior to fermentation. The majority of the juice was fermented cool in stainless steel tanks using cultured yeast and a portion was filled into old French oak barriques, where it was allowed to undergo spontaneous indigenous yeast fermentation. All individual vineyard batches were left on lees and kept separate until late July, when the blend was assembled.SKU: GREYW02

Greywacke

“Greywacke was created in 2009 by Kevin Judd, formerly the chief winemaker at Cloudy Bay for 25 years.
The name Greywacke was adopted by Kevin for his first Marlborough vineyard located in Rapaura in recognition of the prevalance of rounded greywacke river stones in the soild of the vineyard. Greywacke is a sedimentary rock that is widely found in Marlborough, and consists of layers of hard grey sandstone and darker mudstone.”
