Winemaker Notes

Fermented entirely with naturally occurring yeast, this is an alternative style of Sauvignon Blanc that is both intricate and textural. An inviting combination of fragrant patisserie-like aromas and fresh herbs the sweet scent of lemon meringue and apricot friand seems to meld with a tarragon-like herbal quality and a hint of smokiness. The palate is succulent and packed with stone fruit and vanilla, finishing crisp and long with a flinty dryness.

What a way to be introduced to a winery, the 2013 Greywacke Wild Sauvignon is such a superb wine. Not like the usual, boring suspects that fill the shelves of so many retailers and the lists of just as many restaurants, this one truly stands out! Light green straw, color; wild aromas of dried citrus, flowers, earth and faded grasses, this one is so aromatic; medium bodied, alive and resilient on the palate, as active as can be; dry, excellent acidity, well balanced; dried fruit, savory spices, citrus and earth; long finish, complex aftertaste. Drinking well now, but will get even better with a little bit of time. (Tasted: October 5, 2015, Renwick, New Zealand)

Attractive waxy notes and dried flowers, jasmine and straw, then there's a flinty, cooler and more edgy thread too; grapefruit and lime, thiols and sulfides are nicely captured. The palate's finely etched acidity supports nicely focused, grapefruit citrus flavor, neat, composed and compact. Drink now.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Wild Sauvignon Blanc has a beautiful floral nose of orange blossoms and jasmine with underlying ripe nectarine, tangerine and spiced apple notes plus a touch of elderflower. Medium-bodied, ripe, expressive and with plenty of character, it fills the palate with perfumed stone fruit flavors, finishing long with a herbal lift.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Succulent pear, peach and melon flavors show a lovely touch of fresh ginger, dried honeysuckle and nectarine flavors. Generous, sleek and juicy, with plenty of details and a long, lingering finish.

Greywacke, New Zealand
Greywacke Winery Video

One of Marlborough’s pioneering winemakers, Kevin Judd’s appreciable career is intrinsically linked with the global path of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Kevin’s personal venture, Greywacke (pronounced “grey-wacky”), was unveiled in 2009, fulfilling a long-held dream for himself and wife Kimberley.

Named after New Zealand’s prolific bedrock, Greywacke was originally adopted as the name of the Judds’ first vineyard in Rapaura, whose soils had an abundance of these river stones. Now living in the Omaka Valley overlooking Marlborough’s striking patchwork of vines, Kevin sources fruit from mature vineyards in the central Wairau Plains and the Southern Valleys.

Alongside winemaking, Kevin’s talent for photography has seen his evocative images appear in countless publications worldwide, and inevitably, take pride of place on the labels of his solo winemaking venture –– the synthesis of his dual passions.

An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.
