Ex-Cloudy Bay Winemaker has expertise to burn in this classic expression of Marlborough Sav. Having said that, it's no show pony. Llike many the most accomplished examples, this wine offers concentration and texture while tempering those piercing fruit and floral characters against a more restrained and complex background, partly provided by a portion fermented with indigenous yeast. A deserved classic and a must-try in this style.

Its Origins

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

95/100 Bob Campbell MW

Ripe, almost luscious sauvignon blanc with tropical fruit, guava, melon, lime and red capsicum flavours supported by an ethereal texture. A delicious wine, skilfully made from grapes harvested in a very good vintage 29 FEB 2020." Drink 2019 - 2024

95/100 The Real Review, Nick Butler

"Vibrant yellow colour from centre to rim. The nose is instantly charming: smoky and faintly reductive, lemon curd, minerals and dried herbs. Loads of moving parts. A latent sinewy spine adds intrigue, lemongrass and jasmine. A measured leesy texture with just enough flesh. A classy young expression of the variety. 27 JAN 2020." Drink 2020 - 2026

91/100 Decanter, Tina Gellie

"Another star from Kevin Judd, one of Marlborough's pioneering winemakers. Deliciously ripe and vibrant flavours of white nectarine, mandarin, papaya and fresh herbs open up and get better in the glass, enlivened by zingy lemon peel acidity. Oozes class! For an extra £10, the 2017 Wild Sauvignon (which undergoes up to six months of wild-yeast fermentation in old barriques) might be too funky for some but is also top quality." Drink 2020 - 2023
