Tasted the ‘13 vintage not long ago while it was fantastic I felt it just slightly passed its peak. This 15’ is in top form. Nice cherry fruit concentration and freshness on the nose. The palate is a bit richer than the nose suggests with dark plum and abundant earthy elements. Lingering mellow tannins.

So, just arrived in Australia this morning for some wine exploring, and my wife wanted a wine we could sip, so here we are drinking Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc. As fine as the “regular” Greywacke SB is, this wine seems another level up, gooseberry aromas and flavors, really complex, actually reminds me of the early Cloudy Bay SBs we drank a fair amount of after visiting the Cloudy Bay winery back in 1994. — 21 days ago
