We asked our writers, “If you could buy only one wine from this release, which one would it be and why?”

Editor’s note: Sara is away for this release.


Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc 2021

($25.95, Connexion Oenophilia)
David Lawrason– Sometimes I buy on mood. For these sultry evenings of late summer I couldn’t think an outdoor wine that better captures both refreshment and relaxation. This very flavourful, balanced and almost rich Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc 2021 is from Kevin Judd, an NZ legend as the first winemaker at Cloudy Bay. Expect aromas of guava, cucumber, lemon, tarragon and evergreen. It is medium weight, fresh yet substantial, with excellent focus and length.
