Pricing – $14.99

Bottle – The bottle is green with beige label and grey/green font.
Wine – The wine is light straw with green rim variation.
The nose has very tropical fruit flavors such as mangos, pineapple and an aroma of minerality- like wet stone.
This is a clean and crisp medium bodied Sauvignon Blanc.
True to the aromas, the tropical notes of pineapple, mangoes and gooseberry take over the palate. This is followed by a real citrusy component that leads into the finish.
The finish was medium in length and has remnants of pink grapefruit.
The Greyrock Sauvignon Blanc 2016 was a pleasant experience. I wouldn’t say it was my favorite out of the Marlborough region but it surely did the trick on a Friday night after a long week! The flavors were great but I would have liked the finish to be a bit longer and for me, personally, not a huge pink grapefruit fan.
