Greywacke Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2021)

Grown in the central Wairau Valley and the Southern Valleys, the 2021 vintage (5*) was handled principally in stainless steel tanks (a small percentage was fermented with indigenous yeasts in old oak casks). Classy and concentrated, it is vibrantly fruity and savoury, with ripe, passionfruit and lime flavours, showing a distinct touch of complexity, and a crisp, dry finish.
