Marlborough frequently records the highest total of sunshine hours in the country. A long, sunny ripening season extending into April, combined with cool nights helps to preserve acidity. Grey Ghost is partially fermented in French oak and aged for several months on lees. Pungently aromatic, as befits top Marlborough Sauvignon, but with Jackson’s trademark restraint and focus. Nettle and gooseberry characters aligned perfectly with tangy citrus fruit. Great to drink over the next couple of years as an accompaniment to shellfish or chêvre.
