Greywacke (pronounced 'grey-wacky') is the name given to the grey sedimentary rock that characterises much of the soil in this estate's vineyard. The winery was founded in 2009, and is the brainchild of Kevin Judd, former winemaker of Cloudy Bay for 25 years. Intense aromatics of melon, peach and papaya are accompanied by hints of tomato leaf and capsicum.

The palate is crisp but remarkably mouth-filling, a small portion of the wine having been oak fermented. Partner with a selection of canapes made with smoked salmon or anchovies.
