Greywacke is the Marlborough label of Kevin Judd, and the fulfilment of a long held dream. The name Greywacke was adopted by Kevin and his wife Kimberley for their first Marlborough vineyard located 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 1993 with the vague notion that he might one day want to use it on a wine label of his own. This quality focused winemaking venture sources fruit from mature vineyards within the central Wairau Plains and the Southern Valleys. The wines are made by Kevin at Dog Point Winery in the lower Brancott Valley, a facility extended to him by long-standing friends and industry colleagues, Ivan Sutherland and James Healy.
What The Critics Say
94/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim
"Complex, mouthfilling and engaging, this is both stylish and delicious, exhibiting poached pear, rockmelon, jasmine and subtle spice aromas. The palate is superbly ripe and generous, while remaining vibrant and bright, wonderfully supported by silky texture and juicy acidity. The wine offers best of the Old and New Worlds, showing ripe fruit intensity and seductive savoury complexity. At its best: now to 2021. $30.00. www.greywacke.com. Jan 2017." Drink 2017 - 2021
5 Stars Michael Cooper
"Grown in the Brancott Valley (principally) and at Rapaura, the 2015 vintage (5*) was mostly (80 per cent) fermented with indigenous yeasts in old oak barrels and wood-matured for seven months; 20 per cent of the blend was handled with cultured yeasts in tanks. A lovely young wine, showing greater complexity than most Pinot Gris, it is fleshy and vibrantly fruity, with mouthfilling body and deep, ripe peach/pear flavours, slightly sweet (10 grams/litre of residual sugar) and well-rounded. A rich, subtle, finely poised wine, it should be at its best 2018+." Drink 2017 - 2021
