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.
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 coloured core with a greenish tinged outskirts. Jumping out of the glass are pungent aromas of passionfruit, gooseberry and lime followed by some green apple, herbaceous grassy characters and mineral notes. On the palate mouth watering passionfruit, gooseberry, green apple and lime fruits are delivered with superb concentration and drive. Subtle herbaceous grassy and mineral characters lurk underneath. Excellent textural feel finishing dry with crisp acidity and a long scrumptious aftertaste.
Drink over the next 1-2 years.
Alc. 13.5%

Other Reviews....
Distinctive, succulent and wonderfully complex, with honeysuckle, honey-preserved ginger, creamy lemon curd, ripe mango and floral notes, plus stone fruit flavors on a rich, smooth and mouthwateringly juicy frame. Reveals hints of spices that linger on the long, expressive finish. Drink now.

With 25 years at Cloudy Bay, Kevin Judd was key to the global renown of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Today his Greywacke wines (particularly the Wild Sauvignon) are standard bearers in their own right. This elegant, textural vintage brims with zippy pineapple sorbet, elderflower blossom and green mango freshness, with bracing lime acidity and a creamy passionfruit curd finish. Drink 2023-2027.
