Greywacke Wild Sauvignon 2014

Stuart McCloskey “A glorious example that shows New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc (the better, alternative style) in the best light. One-of-a-kind style which is unique and so, so pleasing. 10-years-on, the bouquet is incredibly detailed and multifaceted. Tarragon, elderflower, gooseberry, blackcurrant, candied lime zest, apricot, layers of minerality and salt – incredibly compact, wonderfully cooling and supremely fresh. Who would have thought this was ten-years of age. Equally, the palate displays vitality and shows no signs of withering anytime soon. Textural – I love the phenolic grip. Supremely complex and powerful, but far from clumsy. Lots of palate volume – lip smacking freshness, too. This is a grown-up style of Sauvignon Blanc – Silken, briny, a touch of tonic bitterness, grippy and all served with intelligent sensitivity. Glorious today and will continue to evolve for a further 5-8 years. Perfect, New World Sauvignon Blanc. Served using Zalto Universal glassware.”

Winemaking: The juice was allowed to undergo spontaneous indigenous yeast fermentation, the tail end of which continued for well over six months. The wine had occasional lees stirring and approximately two-thirds of the barrels underwent malo-lactic fermentation. It was transferred out of oak prior to the following harvest and left on yeast lees for a further five months. The wine was bottled in November 2014 and has remained at our cellar until this museum release.
