The Oddbins Take

Wild Sauvignon is the rebellious teenager of the Greywacke range. Shouting “you don’t know me” at the top of its lungs, this is a white wine that wants you to know it isn’t your typical New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

With an intricate and textural alternative style, it refuses to conform to the norms. Sit it down and before long it’ll open-up with an abundance of almond, white nectarine, melon and blood orange flavours entangled with linseed, tarragon and lightly smoked tea.

Greywacke is the label of Marlborough pioneer winemaker Kevin Judd. Born in England, Judd was raised in Australia where he went on to study winemaking at Roseworthy College. In 1983 he joined Selaks Wines having moved to New Zealand and soon after became the founding winemaker at Cloudy Bay winery. 2009 saw the establishment of Judds Greywacke label, which is named after New Zealand’s prolific bedrock.

The fruit used for the Greywacke range is sourced from mature vineyards within the central Wairau Plains and the Southern Valleys. The Sutherland family own a number of these vineyards whilst selected sites from the sub-regions provide parcels of grapes for these wines.

Greywacke ‘Wild Sauvignon’ was fermented in old oak barrels using wild, naturally occurring yeast resulting in an alternative and intricate style of sauvignon blanc. This is a textural wine with notes of white nectarine, blood orange and cantaloupe followed by a lingering savoury and herbal finish of linseed, tarragon and lightly smoked tea.
