Greywacke Chardonnay 2019 Marlborough, New Zealand

Greywacke was created in 2009 by Kevin Judd, the person responsible for the ground-breaking early wines produced in Marlborough. The name ’Greywacke’ was adopted by Kevin for his first Marlborough vineyard, located in Rapaura, in recognition of the prevalence of rounded greywacke river stones in the vineyard’s soils. ’Greywacke’ is a sedimentary rock that is widely found in Marlborough, consisting of layers of hard grey sandstone and darker mudstone. The Chardonnay is fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak barriques (20% new), and goes through complete malolactic fermentation, producing a savoury, rich and powerful wine with great texture and concentration.

An enticing combination of pink grapefruit, pineapple and red apple interwoven with aromas of roasted hazelnuts, spices and a layer of flaky pastry with lemon curd custard. The savoury notes carries through onto the rich, textural palate, evidence of this wine’s low-intervention winemaking. An intricate bone-dry style that is highly concentrated with a distinct flintiness, tight structure and crisp, citrus finish.
