2018 Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc, Greystone, Waipara, New Zealand
From three separate blocks of Sauvignon Blanc, a traditional Bordeaux clone provides a classical backbone, while two Loire clones add tropical fruit characters to the blend.
Light golden in colour, this Sauvignon Blanc is rich, creamy and textural. It possesses ripe fruit flavours - a luscious mix of tropical and stone fruits – which are balanced perfectly with fruit-laden acidity. Wild fermented entirely in old oak with Loire clones adding texture and richness. Partial malolactic contributes to soft acidity and mouthfilling texture.
2018 Organic Chardonnay, Greystone, Waipara, New Zealand
The Chardonnay is a blend of two blocks and two clones – clone 95 and Mendoza.
Aromatically inviting with golden kiwifruit, nashi with mild oak and coconut husk. The palate is full with generous flavours supported by fine grained oak phenolics and ripe acidity.
