Greywacke Chardonnay is a delightful experience into full-bodied chardonnay that retains grace and lightness of step. Everything in line and nothing out of place, this is always a sensational wine. 

On the nose, there's marzipan, pineapple and red apple, underpinned by jasmine, grapefruit and ripe lemon flesh. A heavenly curry leaf, dukkah and hazelnut complexity shines through the layers of fruit. This is edging towards full-bodied yet reigns in the concentration with an enduring crescendo of unripe nectarine acidity.

‘Grown in low-yielding, mature vineyards the juice was fermented
with wild yeast creating a rich full-flavoured wine with savoury complexity. A low-intervention style with nutty, smoky aromas overlaying ripe citrus fruit character. An emphatic wine with mouth-filling mealy flavours and characteristic Mendoza concentration and spine – crisp, long, and lingering.’ – Kevin Judd, winemaker

The true maritime wine region of Aotearoa gained international claim for its Sauvignon Blanc back in the 80's. Creating exceptionally fragrant savvy's were the specialty, now the best winemakers seek more wild flavours a little more true to their terroir. Pinot Noir has found a more appropriate home in the Southern Valleys, whilst Chardonnay and Riesling are seen throughout the region again with that marked perfume and acidity.
Greywacke (pron. Greywacky) is the Marlborough based label of Kevin Judd and named after the predominant bedrock of Aotearoa, New Zealand.
The Marlborough wine region has enjoyed worldwide fame for its now classic style of Sauvignon Blanc. A reputation that was built in large part thanks to Kevin, as the winemaker for Cloudy Bay for the first 25 years.
Greywacke was born out of a simple urge to focus on the wine and the region. Greywacke now represents arguably one of the most impressive and expressive pair of Sauvignon Blancs for Marlborough as well as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Gris.
Two words connect Kevins wines; aromatics and texture.
