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.
A seductively aromatic concoction of vine-ripened red and black berries lightly sautéed with dried oregano and some cloves. A highly perfumed, feminine style of Marlborough Pinot Noir with exotic fruit sweetness and a delicate smoky infusion. The palate is rounded with a fruitcake richness, considerable weight and classic cool-climate vibrancy.
