About this wine

93 Points – Bob Campbell (Master of Wine) Barrel fermented sGreystone’s Barrel Fermented 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 mouth filling texture.auvignon blanc with citrus, grapefruit, nectarine, stone fruit, toast and biscuit flavours. Quite a weighty, textural wine, with reasonably soft acidity.”

94 Points – Cameron Douglas (Master Sommelier) “Varietal Sauvignon Blanc  greets the nose with a sweet herb and angelica leaf tease. Golden Kiwifruit, apple and grapefruit follow close behind. No mistaking the sweet sweaty lift of barrel ferment and lees as well as natural ferment flintiness. A youthful reductive note swirls away easily. Very citrusy and crisp on the palate with lees and barrel flavours to follow. Grapefruit, apple and peach to finish. Youthful and delicious, lengthy and exciting. Drink now and through 2022.”

94 Points – Sam Kim (Wine Orbit) “Wonderfully fruited and intensely aromatic, the wine shows Gala apple, grapefruit, lemon peel and nectarine characters on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that is superbly weighted and flavoursome. It is vibrant and texturally delightful, finishing long and refreshing. At its best: now to 2022.”

4.5 Stars – Michael Cooper for Winestate Magazine “Showing good complexity, this Waipara wine was fermented and lees-aged for eight months in old French oak barrels. Bright, light yellow/green, it is mouth filling, sweet-fruited and smooth, with well-ripened, tropical fruit flavours, finely integrated oak, and a long, very harmonious finish.”

The variety has classic zingy freshness, citrus notes and in the case of Marlborough in particular, gooseberry aromatics and flavours. Very pure, it can often be opulent yet also the opposite, with taut mineral notes. A classic, modern varietal with huge popularity, usually unoaked, there are an increasing number of food-focused expressions with a little barrel maturation adding texture and lift."
