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.
