Kevin Judd first helped to make New Zealand’s iconic Cloudy Bay famous with his terrific winemaking skills. Eventually he decided to start a venture on his own and Greywacke was born. This is his top-notch, barrel-fermented, lees-aged Chardonnay.

Greywacke was founded in 2009 by Kevin Judd – a pioneer of New Zealand’s wine industry. It's named after the region’s rough, stone-strewn sandstone and clay soils that lend its wines a minerally elegance. Kevin works with family growers with old vineyards to obtain the highest quality fruit, then leases a small part of his friends’ Dog Point winery to craft the wines. He majors on Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, as you’d expect of Marlborough, but also does a little of this truly majestic, Burgundy-style Chardonnay. Hand-picked grapes, wild yeasts, all fermented in part new oak barriques, with malolactic fermentation and lees ageing – wow! You can understand perhaps how rich, complex and beautifully balanced this white is. Gently chill.

"cooked apple, vanilla bean, light coconut. A full body with a creamy texture and lots of fruit" James Suckling
