Greystone Organic Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Greystone Organic Sauvignon Blanc 2019

From the company’s Waipara valley vineyards in North Canterbury. The vineyards contain an unusual mix of Sauvignon Blanc clones, including some golden-hued fruit of Loire heritage (376 and 530, for us geeks). The bouquet is gorgeously mealy and complex – you get that classic Sauvignon waft of passion fruit and jalapeno, but then it’s all ripe stonefruit, orange blossom, guava and a touch of almondy oat biscuit.

Delicately balanced acidity and even with a hint of flinty reductivity as the palate broadens and lengthens out. There’s barrel ferment funk and texture here, plus a gentle baking spice. No lack of power, with a pure ripe, tropical, concentration and bags of personality. This is supercharged Sauvignon, but with a finesse to match the vitality and this shows in the extended finish – succulent and poised. 93pts.
