Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc 2023

A floral and textural take on the Marlborough classic.


A floral and textural take on the Marlborough classic.

Region: Marlborough, New Zealand
Varieties: 100% sauvignon blanc
Winemaker: Kevin Judd and Richelle Tyney

Elderflower, kaffir lime, gold peach, honeydew melon, and fresh passionfruit. Wonderfully aromatic, ripe and textural thanks to lees contact. Succulent finish. If you had to have just one Marlborough sauvignon blanc... this would be it.  

The grapes for this wine were sourced from Marlborough’s Southern Valleys and the central Wairau Plains. These vineyards have varied alluvial soils with a high proportion of New Zealand’s greywacke river stones. The grapes were lightly pressed to yield modest volume, high quality juice. Before fermentation, the juice is cold settled and racked before being transferred to stainless steel. A portion of juice went to old oak barrels for a wild yeast fermentation. The seperate vineyard proportions were all kept on lees before blending and bottling.

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.
