Greyrock Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand
This product is currently sold out.
Sileni Estates was born from a long-standing interest in wine by Graeme Avery. In late 1997, along with financial director Chris Cowper and winemaker Grant Edmonds, he established Sileni as an export-oriented producer, committed to crafting world-class fine wines.
The winery is named after the Sileni who featured in Greek mythology as the companions of Dionysus, the God of Wine. They celebrated good wine, good food and good company - the holy trinity here at Kwoff. The vineyards and winery are based near Hasting in, Hawke’s Bay - the oldest wine region in New Zealand, on the east coast of the North Island. The wines are precise and fruit-driven, and as well as Pinot Noir and Syrah the range includes a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
Named for the alluvial plains upon which the vineyards are planted and featuring imagery of the handcarved Greywacke Stone by local Hawke’s Bay sculptor Ema Scott, this is a quality example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc wine.
Greyrock Sauvignon Blanc wine is full of ripe gooseberry and passionfruit, intense tropical fruit and lime flavours, with sweet grassy notes; the rich minerality of the vineyard soils come through the palate to give a rich lingering finish. An excellent match with seafood, or on its own as an aperitif.
