Winemaker's Notes:

A tangy combination of honeydew melon, yellow peach and pawpaw tossed with some red bell pepper, a sprig of spicy tomato leaf and a twist of grapefruit zest — this is an intensely aromatic, mouth-filling wine with a refreshingly crisp, flinty finish.

About Greywacke:

The Greywacke portfolio is based on the Marlborough region's signature varieties, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. The Sauvignon Blanc is crafted in two distinctive styles: classically pure Marlborough Sauvignon, and an alternative wild yeast-fermented, oak-aged Sauvignon. In addition, Kevin indulges his creative drive with small parcels of Chardonnay, along with aromatic varieties Pinot Gris and Riesling. When the season graces this idyllic region with ideal conditions, limited releases of late harvest wines from the aromatic varieties are produced.
