Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc 2018 New Zealand

Kevin’s notes on the 2018
The vintage: Spring was wet and mild with no frost in any of the Greywacke vineyards. Summer temperatures stepped up with December being the second warmest on record, while January saw the highest temperatures since records began. By February it was looking like an early harvest, with superb flowering conditions and a sizeable crop necessitating thinning in almost all vineyards. However, two ex-tropical cyclones brought considerable rainfall in February. Harvest started mid-March with grapes at a good level of physiological ripeness but needing careful hand-sorting to eliminate botrytis. Despite the rain, fruit was able to hang on the vine to achieve very good ripeness levels.

Tasting note: An aromatic salsa-like fusion of ripe summer fruit and fragrant Asian spices. Nectarines and yellow peaches, rock melon, grapefruit and a splash of passionfruit – mingled with ginger and lemongrass, jasmine flowers and cassis. A deliciously ripe and zesty Marlborough Sauvignon with a lemony, citrus thread that finishes crisp and dry.
