Greywacke Marlborough Riesling 2018 (1x75cl)

Greywacke was created in 2009 by Kevin Judd who was the chief winemaker at Cloudy Bay for 25 years. 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. Kevin Judd is also New Zealand's finest wine photographer and has recently published a book The Landscape of New Zealand Wine.

The fruit for this wine was grown at the organically-farmed Ashmore Vineyard in Fairhall, adjacent to the mouth of the Brancott Valley on gravelly clay-loam soils, conditions more typical of the Southern Valleys than the Wairau plains. The 20-year-old vines are trained on a two cane VSP (Vertical Shoot Positioning) trellis with careful shoot and bunch thinning carried out.

100% Riesling.

Residual sugar = 19.5g/litre (ie off-dry).

Greywacke Riesling 2018 - fiche technique

This wine has intense aromas of honeydew melon and tangerine infused with kaffir lime leaves and honeysuckle flowers. On the palate, there are notes of freshly grated ginger and juniper berries. An invigorating off-dry style that delivers a great balance of bright, natural acidity with a subliminal touch of sweetness.

ABV = 12.5%.
