Greywacke was founded in 2009 by Kevin Judd – a pioneer of New Zealand’s wine industry. The wines are named after the soil of his first vineyard, which was littered with the local greywacke stones. Kevin works with family growers with old vineyards to obtain the highest quality fruit then leases a small part of his friends’ Dog Point winery to craft the wines. He majors on Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, as you’d expect of Marlborough, but also does a little Burgundy style Chardonnay. Hand picked grapes, wild yeasts, all fermented in older oak barriques, with some cuvées undergoing malolactic fermentation and all left to age on their lees. Rich, complex, yet beautifully balanced, this white is ideal with creamy sauced white meat or fish.
