Greywacke Wild Sauvignon 2012

Leave a comment

greywackeI was lucky enough to try the whole Greywacke range last week at the New Zealand Trade tasting.

Somewhat unusually for me, being a dedicated Kiwiphile I found a lot of what was on offer

underwhelming. I consulted my recently downloaded ‘When Wine’ a biodynamic calendar for when wine drinks best

and found it to be a root day.

Now it may well be a load of nonsense but something was suppressed last week …

Until I was lucky enough to sample Greywacke . Kevin Judd is something of a genius . The expression and immaculate balance in his wines are secondary to none .

This Wild Sauvignon is special

Fermented entirely with naturally occurring yeast –

 A delicate combination  peach skin aromatics , citrus-blossom notes – a dash of lime cordial hints of fennel.

The finish is  long and crisp the balance perfection.The Chardonnay and other wines equally brilliant.
