Crunchy, piquant, nervy
The name Greywacke is derived from the soils of the same name. They are found in Marlborough (and elsewhere) - a type of compact dark sandstone with clay and quartz matter, which comprises the alluvial river stones in Greywacke's Rapura vineyard. Owner Kevin Judd is known as a pioneer in the region - his wines applauded for their complexity and substance.
A sublime version with verdant nettle and elderflower, piquant lime, grapefruit and green apple, and a mineral core with a dollop of honey. Crunchy and precise on the palate; nervy and razor sharp it has distinct mineral character and a creamy edge to soften the angles. Lengthy and simply outstanding.
