Greywacke Kevin Judd Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Ratings on Delectable

Greywacke is Kevin Judd's present label, after serving as winemaker at Cloudy Bay and propelling the winery to global acclaim. The name Greywacke refers to a type of river stones found throughout New Zealand. At Greywacke, Judd proves to still be a master of Sauvignon Blanc, and his "Wild Sauvignon" is no excpetion. This is the apex of what oak-fermented New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc can be - one doesn’t lose the untethered audacity of its varietal character. Tactile and lengthy, it tastes of sesame seeds, grapefruit, thyme, parsley, green apple skin, and sea salt. Palate coating, but still feral and daring.

Quite pale colour but relatively aromatic - hazelnut mixed with some ripe pear perhaps? Some lemon, lime, pear and blackcurrant leaf to the taste. A clean taste yet with a lightly juicy edge. Quite a refined drop if perhaps a little too restrained.
