Greywacke 'Wild Sauvignon' 2009

Marlborough, South Island, New ZealandFrom the cellar. How does Kiwi sauvignon age? This wild sauvignon feels more like chenin or sémillon than you'd expect. Rich with white asparagus, wild honey, quince and perfumed dried apricots, streamlined with a stream of lemon peel. Wild herbs, gentle anise and a medicinal white cherry linger on the lengthy finish. Age has tempered sauvignon's raciness, and exemplified its earthy honeyed, citrus poignancy.Tasted: 23 March 2017Tasted by: Prices: AB 38.00 fine wine stores BC 40.00 speculative listing - Pacific Wine and Spirits Producer: GreywackeDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
