WINE PRODUCER

‘Greywacke’ is the exciting solo venture of New Zealand wine legend Kevin Judd who spent 25 years as chief winemaker at ‘Cloudy Bay’ – you may have heard of it? He was integral in the international recognition bestowed upon New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc that it still basks in today. Born in England but having grown up in Australia, Kevin made New Zealand his home in 1983 and the world of wine couldn’t be more grateful.

Greywacke Wine Production

The name “Greywacke” (Pronounced Grey-Wacky) was selected by Kevin due to the prevalence of the smooth greywacke river stones located all around the soils at their Raupara based vineyard. ‘Greywacke’ grapes are sourced from mature vineyards all around the Brancott and Wairau Valley areas however the wine is actually made at ‘Dog Point Vineyards’, an offer extended to him by his longtime friend Ivan Sutherland and James Healy. All about the sharing down in good ol’ New Zealand.

Their First Vintage

The first vintage from ‘Greywacke’ debuted in 2009 in the form of a Sauvignon Blanc and was a knock out from the word go. It displayed all of Kevin’s hallmark winemaking styles: ripe fruits, great acid, balance and a real sense of varietal distinction. Since then he has only moved from strength to strength by making a ‘Wild Sauvignon’ which is a Specialist Cellars favourite. The Pinot Noir from ‘Greywacke’ is also a distinctly statement wine with limited releases of Pinot Gris, Riesling, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer.
