Greywacke WILD Sauvignon Blanc

6 in stock

Long, slow (6 months!) fermentation in old oak with wild yeats, and then almost a year on the lees before bottling give this wine a texture, elegance and complexity noticeably different to the regular Greywacke.

Greywacke was created in 2009 by Kevin Judd, chief winemaker at Cloudy Bay from its inception for 25 years and instrumental in the international recognition which Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc enjoys now. 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.
