"Greywacke is the Marlborough label of Kevin Judd, and the fulfilment of a long held dream. The name Greywacke was adopted by Kevin and his wife Kimberley for their first Marlborough vineyard located in Rapaura, named in recognition of the high prevalence of rounded greywacke  river stones in the soils of the vineyard. Kevin registered the name back in 1993 with the vague notion that he might one day want to use it on a wine label of his own. This quality focused winemaking venture sources fruit from mature vineyards within the central Wairau Plains and the Southern Valleys. These prime viticultural sites are cultivated using yield restricting vineyard management techniques and intense canopy management regimes. A number of the vineyards are owned by the Sutherland family, while complementary grape parcels are acquired from additional select sites, all located within these sub-regions. The wines are made by Kevin at Dog Point Winery in the lower Brancott Valley, a facility extended to him by longstanding friends and industry colleagues, Ivan Sutherland and James Healy. The Greywacke portfolio is primarily based on two varieties, sauvignon blanc and pinot noir, the sauvignon blanc being produced in two distinctly different styles. In addition to this core range of three wines, there are also limited edition releases of chardonnay, and three aromatic varieties – pinot gris, riesling and gewurztraminer. Kevin’s signature vineyard photographs provide the  unmistakable identity of the Greywacke range."


Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc 2018 Marlborough

Beim Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc aus Marlborough zeichtet sich Kevin Judd aus Winemaker verantwortlich. Auch der Graywacke Sauvignon Blanc 2018 ist wieder hervorragend gelungen.

91 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc 2018 MarlboroughVerkostungsnotiz von Joe Czerwinski vom 29. FMärz 2019:

The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc shows restrained aromas of fig and melon on the nose, followed by ripe notes of nectarine on the palate. It's medium to full-bodied and richly textured, with a long, silky finish. It may age a bit better than some other classic Marlborough Sauvignons, but don't hold it beyond about 2021. Despite challenging vintage conditions in 2017 and 2018, the current lineup at Greywacke is undeniably successful. "Eighteen ended up being the better of the two," said owner-winemaker Kevin Judd during my January visit. "But they were both hard work." Judd said 2018 combined the warmest vintage on record with record precipitation in February. He seems equally comfortable with Riesling and Pinot Gris as he is with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, using wood for portions of their élevage, just as in the Burgundy varieties. For Riesling, Judd said, "The oak is just to get some evolution—it lets the sulfides [most of the wines here are fermented with indigenous yeasts] become less stinky." Don't overlook the terrific series of botrytis wines!

Greywacke Pinot Noir 2015 Marlborough
91 Punkte Wine Advocate für 2014 !
Verkostungsnotiz von Lisa Perrotti-Brown vom 30. Dezember 2016:
Medium ruby colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir exudes lovely floral notes of roses and lavender with a core of cranberries and red currants, plus hints of Provence herbs and fragrant earth. Light to medium-bodied, soft, elegant and filled with earthy/perfumed flavor layers, it delivers great expression and poise.

97-98 Punkte Raymond Chan für 2013
Er beschreibt den Greywacke Pinot Noir 2013 wie folgt:
Marlborough Pinot Noir is severely under-recognised. Some superb bottlings have emerged over the years. Fromm, Villa Maria, Auntsfield, Saint Clair, TerraVin and Te Whare Ra to name a few. The Greywacke is another one up there. At present about 20% whole bunch. Maybe more can work well? Moderately dark ruby-red with slight purple hues. This has a full, deep nose of ripe dark raspberry and cherry fruit with an array of soft red fruits and florals, the faintest whole bunch herbal detail, some toasty oak spices. Full-flavoured and mouthfilling layers of flavour unfold. It isn't the ripest and darkest in fruit, but the interplay of soft red fruits, florals, herbs, spices and toasty oak is sensational to me. Soft and supple textures enhance the opulence and the wine carries effortlessly to a lush and exotic finish.

93 Punkte Bob Campbell für 2013
Er beschreibt den Greywacke Pinot Noir 2013 wie folgt:
A fragrant Pinot Noir with floral, violet, black cherry, a hint of wood smoke and spicy oak flavours. A supple, elegant and seamless wine in an accessible style, but with medium-term ageing potential. A wine with power that's delivered with subtlety.

Greywacke Chardonnay 2015
Greywacke Chardonnay 2015Verkostungsnotiz von Joe Czerwinski vom 28. Februar von 2018:

A harmonious blend of roasted hazelnuts and toasted grain accents pineapple fruit in Greywacke's 2015 Chardonnay. This looks to be the best vintage of Chardonnay Kevin Judd has made to date, showing great texture, class and length. It's medium to full-bodied yet shows great length and elegance to its citrusy fruit profile.

94 Punkte Suckling | Greywacke Wild Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Wild Ferment MarlboroughTastingnote 8. Oktober 2018:

This has all the complexity seen in great white wines with plenty of savory influence. Grilled nuts adorn biscuity and flinty lemon and grapefruit pith. The palate has punchy dried-peach and lemon flavors, as well as an appealing, very succulent and carefully layered texture. Drink now. Screw cap.
