Greywacke Sauvignon Wild 2018



Details of wine

Imagine an almond friand full of white nectarine, blood orange and rockmelon ? laced with linseed, tarragon and lightly smoked tea. This is an alternative style that is both intricate and textural, a delicious concoction created by fermenting sauvignon blanc entirely with naturally occurring yeast.



Giallo paglierino brillante.


Decadente pasticceria aromatica - brioche, marmellata di albicocche e cagliata di limone, strati di nettarina, pesca gialla e ananas maturo - infusa con sfumature erbacee di dragoncello e timo.


Al palato è avvolgente, ricco, fresco, con sapori fruttati nel finale.



FORMAT 0,75 L Standard



GROUND I tipi di terreno variano dai giovani depositi alluvionali di Rapaura e Renwick, che contengono alte percentuali di pietre di fiume grigio, ai vecchi e più densi argille delle valli meridionali.
REFINEMENT E' stato travasato prima della vendemmia successiva e lasciato sulle fecce di lievito per altri 6 mesi.
WINEMAKING Il mosto è stato sottoposto a fermentazione spontanea di lieviti indigeni, la cui coda è proseguita per ben oltre 6 mesi. Il vino ha avuto occasionalmente delle fecce che si sono mescolate e circa 2/3 hanno svolto la fermentazione malolattica.

Web Site:

Greywacke is the Marlborough label of Kevin Judd, and the fulfilment of a long held dream. The name Greywacke was adopted by Kevin and his wife Kimberley for their first Marlborough vineyard located in Rapaura, named in recognition of the high prevalence of rounded greywacke river stones in the soils of the vineyard. Kevin registered the name back in 1993 with the vague notion that he might one day want to use it on a wine label of his own. This quality focused winemaking venture sources fruit from mature vineyards within the central Wairau Plains and the Southern Valleys. These prime viticultural sites are cultivated using yield restricting vineyard management techniques and intense canopy management regimes. A number of the vineyards are owned by the Sutherland family, while complementary grape parcels are acquired from additional select sites, all located within these sub-regions. The wines are made by Kevin at Dog Point Winery in the lower Brancott Valley, a facility extended to him by long-standing friends and industry colleagues, Ivan Sutherland and James Healy.
