Greywacke (yes, it’s pronounced grey-wacky) is the family wine label of the Judds. You’ll find Greywacke HQ in Omaka, Marlborough producing world class Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and other styles from organically farmed sites.
Head of the family is Kevin Judd – an absolute winemaking legend in his own right and pretty handy with a camera too! Kevin has pursued a parallel career as a photographer and has published several books including “The Landscape of New Zealand Wine”, “The Colour of Wine” and (our favourite) “Wine Dogs New Zealand”.
Born in England and raised in Aussie, Judd moved to NZ in 1983 and would later become the founding winemaker of Cloudy Bay and go on to produce the first 25 vintages.
“Keep it simple and hands-on” – that’s the Greywacke way of thinking. Trust us, the wines are anything but simple! Best known for their world class Sauvignon Blanc but increasingly the spotlight is on Pinot Noir in this part of the wine world. And Greywacke Pinot Noir from Marlborough is a top class example.
Scoring a huge 95/100 with Master of Wine Bob Campbell who said “Delicately scented and quite floral wine with violet/rose petal, cherry, anise/spice, cherry/berry and subtle oak flavours. Aromatic and appealing wine with purity and subtle power. Perfectly formed.”
Drink this now or cellar until 2030.
