Greywacke Marlborough NZ Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Taut, fresh Sauvignon Blanc with fine acidity and flavours suggesting gooseberry, green capsicum, mineral and lemon grass. Understated at first, the wine developed magnificently in the glass to reveal surprising power and flavour intensity. The best 2009 Sauvignon Blanc tasted to date.
Tasted: Sep 2009 Closure: S'cap Average price: NZD $26 (~USD $23)
