Greywacke is the Marlborough label of former Cloudy Bay winemaker Kevin Judd, where he presided over that company’s first 25 vintages establishing the reputation that it has today. The name Greywacke was adopted by Kevin and his wife Kimberley for their first Marlborough vineyard in Rapaura, named in recognition of the high prevalence of rounded greywacke river stones in the soils of the vineyard. Kevin registered the name back in 1992 with the vague notion that he might one day want to use it on a wine label of his own.

Texturally mouth filling and bursting with intensity, this is quintessential Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

Fruit was sourced from various prime vineyard sites in Marlborough’s Southern Valleys and the central Wairau Plains with a portion of the juice fermented in old oak barrels. Brilliant water like core with distinct highlights of green around the outskirts. Leaping from the glass is a mix of passionfruit, gooseberry and green apple scents which are followed by herbaceous grassy asparagus like notes and hints of capsicum. Mouth filling flavours of ripe gooseberry and passionfruit are delivered with fantastic intensity and drive. Subtle grassy asparagus and flinty mineral characters lie underneath. Crisp, mouth-watering finish with a long and powerful aftertaste that’s totally scrumptious.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
