Nouvelle-Zélande - Marlborough

Domaine Greywacke 2019

€760 Flacon de 10cl

Take a trip to the vineyards of New Zealand with this Sauvignon Blanc, which is on a par with the finest Sancerre and white Bordeaux. The nose has the classic Sauvignon notes, with hints of grapefruit, opulent exotic fruits and honeysuckle to add. This is a lively white wine on the palate with great intensity. The flavours are just as fruity as the nose, with zesty grapefruit and lime. This vintage has a creamy, full texture making it a rich wine, with minerality in the finish and very nice length. When the former winemaker of Cloudy Bay founds his own label, the result is dazzling.

Winemaker

Kevin Judd

Thanks to the dynamic adopted throughout the country, New Zealand has succeeded in turning its challenging climate into an advantage and today produces wines with freshness and aromatic intensity. Marlborough is the country’s leading wine region, both in terms of volume and reputation. This reputation is largely due to Kevin Judd, who was the founding winemaker at Cloudy Bay and pioneered the style of wine with which Marlborough has become synonymous – wines with zippy minerality, great acidity and beautiful aromatic profiles.
