Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc 2016 ONLINE EXCLUSIVE]

Greywacke is the exciting new solo venture of Kevin Judd, who was chief winemaker at Cloudy Bay for 25 vintages and instrumental in the international recognition which New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc enjoys today. The debut wine under the Greywacke label was the 2009 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, which sold out almost everywhere. The long-awaited 2010 vintage displays the hallmarks of Kevin۪s famed style: ripe fruit, fine balance, great concentration and superb varietal intensity.

The Greywacke۪ name derives from the greywacke rock which is prevalent in New Zealand and consists of layers of hard grey sandstone alternating with thinner layers of darker mudstone. "Made in a consciously ripe style, according to Judd, but this still seems elegant by the standards of some of the sweeter, more tropical Marlborough styles. It۪s stylish and restrained with notes of coriander, grapefruit and lemongrass and a crisp, tangy minerality that wouldn۪t look out of place in Sancerre."

In store Price 18.99

 

“Stylish, ripely scented wine, mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, with vibrant melon/lime flavours, showing good delicacy that builds strongly across the palate to a finely textured, dry, long finish.” 5 Stars, Michael Cooper, BUYER’S GUIDE TO NZ WINES 2014
