DESCRIPTION
  • Greywacke is located in the lower Brancott Valley, in Marlborough and is benefitted by the winemaking prowess of Kevin Judd. Sourcing prime fruit from mature vineyards within the central Wairau and Southern Valleys, Kevin uses low-intervention winemaking to create wines hallmarked by their concentration and individuality.

    The Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc is renowned as one of the best Sauvignon Blanc's in the Marlborough region. Regardless of vintage, this Sauvignon Blanc perfects the balance between fruit, zest and floral nuances. 

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Harvested largely by machine during cool (often cold) night-time conditions, the sauvignon blanc grapes were picked into half-tonne bins, which were tipped directly into the tank press and lightly pressed. The resulting juice was cold-settled prior to fermentation in stainless steel, primarily using cultured yeast for cool, slow fermentation. A portion was allowed to undergo spontaneous indigenous yeast fermentation.

    TASTING NOTES

    An aromatic salsa-like fusion of ripe summer fruit and fragrant Asian spices. Nectarines and yellow peaches, rock melon, grapefruit and a splash of passionfruit – mingled with ginger and lemongrass, jasmine flowers and cassis. A deliciously ripe and zesty Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with a lemony, citrus thread that finishes crisp and dry.

    'This youthful sauvignon has attractive lime-leaf and fresh-herb aromas with passion fruit and a succulent, fine and fresh lime finish. Immediate enjoyment here.'

    '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.'

    ‘It's certainly determined not to be aggressively, pungently fruity on the nose. Very broad fruit on the palate – very winning – with lots of acidity. Great precision on the palate and a notably dry finish.’
    16 / 20 Points, Jancis Robinson
