"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 Chardonnay 2015

93 Parker Punkte für den Greywacke Chardonnay 2015Joe Czerwinski bewertet den Greywacke Chardonnay 2015 im Februar 2018 wie folgt:

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.

Very rich, complex and layered in all respects, this is still super fresh with a little bottle age to show. The aromas of fresh and grilled yellow peaches sit attractively amid toasted-grain and hazelnut notes. The rich and complex palate holds long and smooth. Drink now. Screw cap.

Greywacke Wild Sauvignon 2017 Kevin Judd Marlborough

Noch 5 Fl. vorrätig

Winemaker Kevin Judd ist eine Art Legende! Der Greywacke Wild Sauvignon Blanc 2017 Wild Ferment Marlborough reiht sich ein in eine Vielzahl von Weinen, die unkonventionell und dennoch (oder vielleicht deswegen?) überragend sind. Wild ferment ist das Pendant zum Deutschen Begriff der Spontangärung mit kellereigenen Hefen, also ein für den Wein unglaublich naturnaher Prozess. So kann man Herkunft, Terroir und Typizität herausarbeiten, wie auf keine andere Art und Weise sonst.

94 Punkte Suckling | Greywacke Wild Sauvignon Blanc 2017 Wild Ferment MarlboroughTastingnote 14. August 2019:

A very complex and quite different style with plenty of reductive, flinty funk and toasted-lime zest, as well as clotted cream and passion fruit. The palate has a rich and fluid feel with plush, smoothly fleshy build and a sweeping, round finish. Drink now. Screw cap.
