Greywacke is the exciting solo venture of Kevin Judd, who was formerly the chief winemaker at Cloudy Bay for 25 vintages, and was instrumental in the international recognition which New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc enjoys today. The name ‘Greywacke’ was adopted by Kevin for his first Marlborough vineyard located in Rapaura in recognition of the high prevalence of rounded greywacke river stones in the soils there.
The grapes were pressed relatively lightly and the resulting juice was cold-settled prior to racking into French oak barriques, the majority of which were old. The juice was allowed to undergo spontaneous indigenous yeast fermentation, the tail end of which continued for over six months. The wine had occasional lees stirring and approximately half of the barrels underwent malo-lactic fermentation. It was transferred out of oak during the following harvest and left on yeast lees for a further five months.
Fermented entirely with naturally occurring yeast – this is an alternative style of Sauvignon Blanc that is both intricate and textural. A succulent combination of yellow peach and brown pears, rolled into rich, short pastry with a sprinkling of caramelised almonds. The palate is full of lemon curd and vanilla custard with a touch of dried herbs and a lingering grapefruit finish.
