Greywacke is the venture of Kevin Judd, former winemaker at Cloudy Bay for twenty five years and in the process established it as the world's most famous Sauvignon Blanc producer. The Greywacke 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.
The 2021 Greywacke Chardonnay is another high quality white wine from the team at Greywacke. Complex and generous, this offers a deliciously rich amalgam of pink grapefruit, figs and baked apples intertwine with more savoury characters redolent of meadow hay, toasted hazelnuts and buttered brioche. This grapefruit and nutty savouriness pervades the crisp, dry palate, while the power and concentration of the Mendoza clone creates an extraordinarily long finish that lingers and lingers.
"The powerful 2021 vintage (5*) was grown principally in the lower reaches of the Brancott Valley and at Fairhall, with smaller amounts from Renwick and Rapaura. Hand-harvested, it was fermented and matured for 11 months in French oak barriques (20 per cent new). Bright, light yellow/green, it has a fragrant, gently smoky bouquet. Notably sturdy and weighty, it has finely balanced acidity and concentrated, ripe stonefruit flavours, complex and savoury. A bolder style than most of the region's Chardonnays, it should be at its best 2025+. This wine is a Classic. When to drink: 2025"- Michael Cooper's Buyer's Guide
