Deep, dark red colour with a good purple tint, the bouquet very strong on oak, spicy toasty barrels have been liberally employed. Well-ripened stems may be adding to this impression. The wine is lovely and soft in the mouth, the texture a winner. A concentrated wine, with abundant tannins adding great fleshy extract. The length is prodigious. I’d give it more time to swallow up that oak, then it’ll be even better. Drink date: 2023-2034. Score – 94. (Huon Hooke, therealreview.com, April 17, 2022)
Aromas of cassis and passionfruit are first to emerge, with guava, crisp pear and white peach adding a delicious intricacy. On the palate, it is generous yet refreshing, with ripe pineapple and a lime sherbet zing, layered with elderflower and hints of citrus blossom. A classic example of Greywacke’s interpretation of the famous Marlborough style – ripe, textural and scruptious, with the volume turned well down.
Greywacke Wild Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough New Zealand is a fragrant wine with delicate aromas of apple blossom, luscious melon and lemon sherbet. The palate delivers a shot of lime sorbet and flinty minerality within its Yin-Yang structure of delicate sweetness and vibrant acidity.
