Greywacke Wines & Cases - New Zealand
Named after the distinctive rounded Greywacke river-stones found in the soils of the vineyard on the estate, Greywacke wine has had a rapid accent since its founding in 2009. Greywacke is the latest endeavour and success story to come from Kevin Judd, a winemaker who came to prominence during his time spent at Cloudy Bay.
When the first cases of Greywacke wine were first released to the world they were received with great excitement by the international wine community. The first cases were snatched up by local and international importers on the back of Judds impressive reputation, a reputation built on helping to bring New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc into the worlds spotlight.
Greywacke Wines core business revolves around three main wines; two distinctive varieties of Sauvignon Blanc and a Pinot Noir. From time to time you will also find Greywacke release a limited run on other varietals including Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Gewurztraminer.
Greywacke is produced in the Marlborough region of New Zealand, a region famous for its winemaking and a region that makes up more than half of the total vineyard area in the country. Marlboroughs special climate has helped New Zealand winemakers such as Greywacke get the very best from their grapes on which theyve built their international reputation. Sauvignon Blanc is the main varietal of the Marlborough region and wines made using this grape such as Greywacke are known for offering unique aromas and flavours.
The distinctive characteristics of Greywacke wines lend themselves to the special climate of the Marlborough region, where hot days and cool nights allow winemakers to ripen their grapes over an extended period should they wish, which can help develop great tastes and aromas that may otherwise not be possible.
