Greywacke Marlborough Wild Sauvignon 2019 $36

Paired with Annabel Langbein’s Smoked Salmon & Egg Gratin in NZ Herald Canvas Sat Aug 20 2022.

Crafted from fruit grown in Marlborough’s Southern Valleys in the Renwick, Rapaura and Woodbourne regions, this intensely delicious-yet-delicately stylish sauvignon is laced with marzipan, sugar snap peas, homemade lemonade and loads of luscious, creamy herbaceousness from occasional lees stirring and a splishy-splash of malolactic fermentation. If you thought that sentence was a mouthful, just wait til you try it with Annabel’s Smoked Salmon and Egg Gratin.

It’s an absolutely lovely sauvignon that guides you down the softly, smoky side of the street and cloaks your palate in plush citrus and creamy complexity.
