2021 Greywacke Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

97 Points Wine Rater
In stock
A sophisticated classic of Marlborough made by ex-Cloudy Bay winemaker, Kevin Judd. Like the country's very finest examples, the Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc delivers those piercing fruit and aromatic characters while tempering them in a more restrained and complex, texture-focused palate. A deserved legend 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

97/100 Winerater.co.nz

"A classic, pure, Loire-like wine on the nose with fragrant lemongrass, jasmine and redcurrant aromas and smoky complexity that keeps unfolding with time in the glass. It's so concentrated as to almost taste sweet initially. The palate is viscous and potent, has a remarkable texture with striking power and length. Very impressive and worth making a fuss about.’’

93/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Concentrated, punchy sauvignon blanc with grapefruit, passionfruit, green capsicum, lemongrass and guava flavours supported by fruity acidity. A textural wine with good weight and a lingering finish 26 JAN 2022." Drink 2022 - 2026
