Greywacke Riesling 2019
- New Zealand
- White Wine
A vibrant medley of Granny Smith apple, white-fleshed nectarine, mandarin and citrus blossom – entwined with a wild-yeast derived gunflint and lanolin-like savouriness. An invigorating off-dry style that walks on the wild side and delivers a ying-yang balance of bright, natural acidity and a subliminal touch of sweetness – a mouthwatering palate that finishes with a delicious lemon/lime tang.
Greywacke is the Marlborough label of Kevin Judd, and the fulfilment of a long held dream. The name Greywacke was adopted by Kevin and his wife Kimberley for their first Marlborough vineyard located in Rapaura, named in recognition of the high prevalence of rounded greywacke river stones in the soils of the vineyard. Kevin registered the name back in 1993 with the vague notion that he might one day want to use it on a wine label of his own.
