Greywacke, Sauvignon Blanc 2016
One of the most sought after Marlborough Sauvignons, demand must follow owner Kevin Judd around – he was chief winemaker at Cloudy Bay for 25 years before deciding to go things alone. Intriguing fenugreek seed and bacon fat aromas evolve into elderflower and citrus. On the palate, intense gooseberry and fenugreek dominate, with elderflower and honeysuckle providing some richness, followed up by slight mineral notes. Although vibrant, the acidity is kep in check, making this a well balanced wine.
