2021 Greywacke Wild Sauvignon Blanc


This wine beat all the very expensive big name White Bordeaux wines on the list!
Unfortunately only 2 cases were available. 
We are limiting it to 3 bottles per person to spread it around.  Order online to make sure you get some. 

2021 Greywacke Wild Sauvignon Blanc...$29.99
The flagship wine from renowned winemaker Kevin Judd, who founded this winery with wife Kimberley in 2009 after 25 years at Cloudy Bay. Sourced from sites across the region, it is fermented using wild yeasts in old French oak barriques where it rests on lees for six months. Roger Jones: Stylish balance of fruit to herbaceous notes, multi-layered with a crunchy texture, mellow yellow summer field flowers. The elegance at the end is quite remarkable. Freddy Bulmer: Attractive and clean on the nose, plenty of primary fruit but also a nice amount of savoury character from the oak. Well balanced and really quite a serious wine. Cat Lomax: Expressive, punchy nose. Great concentration, tonnes of luscious Sauvignon fruit supported by very smart use of oak. Tastes like pricey white Bordeaux. Delicious.
Rated 97/100 Decanter Magazine
The 2021 Wild Sauvignon is superb; the wine has all the tilt and lift of Sauvignon Blanc and all the richness from the maturation vessels, plus something extra from the low-yielding but excellent 2021 vintage. This is an exciting wine that is already so balanced and poised. Excellent. Drink it now (most will) or cellar it for up to 20 years, maybe more? 14% alcohol, sealed under screw cap.

Don Vincente Tequila Blanco...$46.99
Certified Additive Free
Don Vicente Blanco is all-natural, exceptionally clean, and clear. A straightforward sweetness from the cooked Blue Weber Agave and a delicious minerality and earthiness from the +450 ft deep well water.  Oxygenated for a whole day for a softer, lighter, and buttery mouthfeel, making the flavors perfectly balanced. The more you drink it, the more pleasant it will be.
The perfect sipping tequila.

Don Vincente Tequila Reposado...$54.99
Certified Additive Free
Remarkably smooth. The same body of Don Vicente Blanco rested in used American White Oak Bourbon barrels for less than a year.
The aging adds a complexity of aromas and flavors. The cooked Blue Weber Agave, minerality, and earthiness are all still very present due to the used barrel not overpowering them; with hints of vanilla, caramel, and butterscotch.  A rich and buttery mouthfeel.

Very limited!
Don Vincente Tequila Extra Añejo.....$149.99
Certified Additive Free
Don Vicente Extra Añejo is aged for at least 3 years in used American White Oak Bourbon barrels. It packs an explosion of aromas & flavors.
The cooked Blue Weber Agave is still present at the center of this Extra Añejo, with hints of oak, fruit, caramel, and butterscotch around it. The oxygenation keeps all the flavors very well balanced, preventing any flavor from overtaking the other.  Unbelievably smooth.

What emerges is a flavorful and rich Tennessee Whiskey." -- Jack Daniels Website
