An excellent example of how good barrel fermented Sauvignon blanc can be. This Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of summer fruit and pasty - peaches, nectarines, lime meringue pie and apple custard, all with a hint of dill and wood smoke. The palate is full with flavours of citrus and stone fruit, crisp acidity and notes of flint on the long, dry finish.

Greywacke was created in 2009 by Kevin Judd, chief winemaker at Cloudy Bay from its inception for 25 years and instrumental in the international recognition which Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc enjoys now. The name 'Greywacke' was adopted by Kevin for his first Marlborough vineyard located in Rapaura in recognition of the high prevalence of rounded greywacke river stones in the soils of the vineyard, a sedimentary rock which is widely found in Marlborough.
