Greywacke 2014 Sauvignon Blanc and 2012 Wild Sauvignon and Pinot Noir

09-Jan-2015
Kevin and Kimberley Judd continue their Marlborough wine dream with their ‘Greywacke’ label which in a short time has become recognised as one of the most exciting in the region. With around three decades of winemaking experience with Marlborough fruit, Kevin quietly pushes the boundaries of complexity and style of his wines so they capture the interest of the serious and sophisticated wine lover. However, the wines retain the essential accessible fruit-expressive nature of the Marlborough region that makes them world famous. The recent white wine releases in particular have incorporated considerable layers of complexities, not too dissimilar to the Dog Point wines of their friends the Sutherlands and the Healys. The similarities may stem from the fruit sources which they share a portion of, and also, the Greywacke wines are made at the Dog Point winery! I also see differences; the Greywacke wines have a richer, ‘sweeter’ nature, more fruit focussed, and they are possibly more hedonistic, whereas the Dog Point wines are drier, with firmer and tighter lines, and dare I say it more cerebral. Vive la difference! Here, I review the new Greywacke releases, the 2014 Sauvignon Blanc, and the 2012 ‘Wild’ Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. www.greywacke.com
