2017 Greywacke "Wild Sauvignon" Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

SKU #1455968 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A very complex and quite different style with plenty of reductive, flinty funk and toasted-lime zest, as well as clotted cream and passion fruit. The palate has a rich and fluid feel with plush, smoothly fleshy build and a sweeping, round finish. Inner quote mark (8/2019)

93 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Fermented in barrel using indigenous yeasts and transferred out of oak before the following harvest, with a further eight months on lees in tank. The lees, struck flint and subtle oak influence sit nicely alongside bright, herbal-dominant sauvignon blanc characters. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Succulent white peach, apricot and lemon curd flavors are wonderfully lush and complex, with whiffs of beeswax, powdered ginger and lemongrass that linger on a juicy frame. (MW) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

K&L Notes

A limited bottling from one of our most popular New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc producers. Greywacke is the new project from acclaimed winemaker Kevin Judd who was one of the main forces behind the ascendancy of Cloudy Bay and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc as a whole! This texturally rich wine is fermented and aged in barrique, offering an intriguing alternative to the more typical stainless steel fermented style of Marlborough Savvy. The wine was slowly fermented with indigenous yeast, and the lees were occasionally stirred to further enrich the texture. About half of the barrels underwent malolactic fermentation, and the wine was transferred to tank on the fine lees where it aged for an additional five months before bottling.
