Greywacke Sauvignon Blanc

A delicious fusion of deep and ripe summer fruits.

From Marlborough legend, Kevin Judd, this excellent Sauvignon Bland consists of citrus blossom and elderflower entwined with nectarines and white peaches, mandarin and melon with a twist of lemon. Intensely flavoured, succulent and crisp with a delicate herbal infusion.

Fruit was sourced from various prime vineyard sites in Marlborough’s Southern Valleys and the central Wairau Plains which contain high proportions of New Zealand’s greywacke river stones, to the older and denser clay-loams of the Southern Valleys. Harvested largely by machine during cool (often cold) night-time conditions preserving the light and delicate flavours of the sauvignon blanc grapes.

The Producer - Greywacke

The Producer - Greywacke

Greywacke is a sustainable and partially organic site in Marlborough New Zealand. They restrict crop levels to concentrate flavours and maximise the long cool growing season found in this South Pacific climate. The fruit is sourced from mature vineyards in prime vinicultural sites to optimise the potential of each and every grape. The Greywacke range is primarily based on two varieties Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot noir but they do have limited releases of Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Gris. The term greywacke refers to the sandstone (wacke is a German name for a type of sandstone), but it is also used as a general term for the entire rock. This stone is found almost everywhere in New Zealand especially in the rivers and vineyard soils of Marlborough making it the perfect name for this Winery.
