Jackson Estate Grey Ghost Barrique Wairau Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2016)

Currently on sale, the 2016 vintage (5*) is maturing very gracefully. Hand-picked from vines planted in 1988 and fermented in old oak barriques, it is a bright, light lemon/green wine, refined, complex and still youthful. Medium-bodied, it is ripely herbaceous, with tropical-fruit flavours, finely integrated oak, and a fully dry, long finish.
