GREYSTONE BARREL FERMENTED SAUVIGNON BLANC 2017 is available to buy in increments of 1
This is outstanding Sauvignon Blanc. You could say it's an enhanced rendition of New Zealand's favourite variety. Naturally fermented for six months in French oak barrels with wild yeasts. Partial malolactic fermentation contributes complexity through the palate with rich fruit expression. The wine was naturally settled in barrel post fermentation, then blended and bottled on site without fining. The resulting wine shows fantastic richness on the palate yet it retains a lithe freshness throughout. ​Although the wine-making style hasn't changed, the new 2017 label now includes Barrel Ferment, to indicate the style.
Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Clear pale lemon in colour. Opulent aromas of pineapple, tropical fruits, lemon balm and fresh cut herbs. Expect a generous and textual mouthfeel from the barrel ferment, minerality, juicy acidity and soft phenolics on the back palate."
5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, February 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Full, light golden yellow colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. This has a fresh and firmly-packed nose with aromas of green stonefruits and gooseberries, along with nectarines and fresh herbs, and subtle suggestions of nut and spicy oak. The aromatics are balanced and show good intensity. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is fulsome and deep hearted with flavours of green stonefruits, nectarines and gooseberries along with fresh herbs and a little oak spice. The palate has good weight and mouthfilling presence, and the fruit is underlined by fine phenolic textures. The mouthfeel is enlivened by bright acidity lifting the herb and florals, and the wine carries to a long and sustained finish. This is a fulsome and deep flavoured oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with green stonefruit and herb notes on a fresh, gently textured palate. Match with herb-marinated seafood and white meat dishes over the next 3+ years."
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"This North Canterbury wine was fermented in old French oak casks. It is mouthfilling (13.5% alc/vol), with strong, ripe, tightly structured, vaguely honeyed flavours, showing excellent complexity."
