Greywacke 'Wild Sauvignon' Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough
Greywacke was created in 2009 by Kevin Judd, chief winemaker at Cloudy Bay from its inception for 25 years and instrumental in the international
recognition which Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc enjoys now. 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 of the vineyard, a sedimentary rock
which is widely found in Marlborough. Kevin Judd is also New Zealand's
finest wine photographer and has recently published a book 'The
Landscape of New Zealand Wine'.
Imagine an almond cake full of white nectarine, blood orange and melon –
laced with linseed, tarragon and lightly smoked tea. This is an
alternative style that is both intricate and textural, a concoction
created by fermenting entirely with naturally occurring yeast.
