What’s in the glass tonight June 21st – Sauvignon Blanc

Greystone SB

Greystone Barrel-Fermented Sauvignon Blanc Waipara 2016 – $

13.5% alc. Pale straw colour.

A gorgeous textural wine. Indigenous yeasts and oak handling give this wine complexity and engagement. Perhaps not a classical NZ sav in style, but it still shows tropical fruit notes and open airs of citrus.

Sweet entry on palate, mealy, rich ripe fruit flavours. Golden goodness I say. Unmistakably a savvy, but this is sav+. I think this is fantastic, and a keeper.

A new fav.

Outstanding 95 points.
