2015 Greywacke Wild Sauvignon Blanc

A funky style of Sauvignon by the master Kevin Judd

Description

An alternative, barrel-fermented style of Sauvignon, Greywacke Wild 2015 is a complex and harmonious wine drinking well now but will be even better at around 5 years old. Winemaker Kevin Judd selects riper parcels of Sauvignon fruit and then gently presses the free run juice to barrel for fermentation with wild yeasts. After a year in barrel, the wine is kept on lees in tank for another 5 months before bottling. An incredibly complex and food friendly style of Sauvignon, Greywacke WIld is a great match for Asian style spiced fish.

Smells

A bit of smoke, almond, lavender, tarragon, oregano and green tea, with tropical fruit aromas like papaya and pineapple.

Tastes

Dried herb complexity and loads of soft, sweet fruit, this dry style of Sauvignon shows plenty of character and will only develop more with time in the bottle.
