GWK_PinotGris_NVJoin us for a Winery Spotlight tasting event, featuring Greywacke wines of Marlborough, New Zealand.

Winemaker Kevin Judd

Kevin Judd, winemaker

One of Marlborough’s pioneering winemakers, Kevin Judd’s career is intrinsically linked with Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Established in 2009, Judd’s label Greywacke (pronounced “grey-wacky”) is the fulfillment of a long-held dream. Named after New Zealand’s prolific bedrock, Greywacke was originally adopted by Kevin and his wife Kimberley as the name for their first Marlborough vineyard in Rapaura, whose soils have an abundance of these river stones. Greywacke sources fruit from mature vineyards within Marlborough’s central Wairau Plains and the Southern Valleys. Also an established professional photographer, Judd’s home in the Omaka Valley overlooking Marlborough’s picturesque vineyards provides inspiration for both his passions.

The Greywacke portfolio is based on the Marlborough region’s signature varieties, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. The Sauvignon Blanc is crafted in two distinctive styles: classically pure Marlborough Sauvignon, and an alternative wild yeast-fermented, oak-aged Sauvignon. In addition, Kevin indulges his creative drive with small parcels of Chardonnay, along with aromatic varieties Pinot Gris and Riesling. When the season graces this idyllic region with ideal conditions, limited releases of late harvest wines from the aromatic varieties are produced.

The wines of Marlborough are known worldwide for their precision, intensity, and distinctiveness, bequeathed by an extraordinary climate and a diverse collection of soils. The expression of unique sites within this distinguished environment lifts the wines of Greywacke to another level. Kevin takes a low-intervention approach to winemaking in order to coax the finest nuance of individuality from each hand-selected vineyard parcel, while maintaining the aromatic intensity for which Marlborough is renowned. Purity of varietal expression is a foregone conclusion in the fruit Kevin works with; indigenous yeast are then left to run their course in new and older French oak barriques, ensuring ample texture and complexity in these compelling wines. Already garnering worldwide acclaim, they show a common thread of layered concentration, fine structure and invigorating freshness.
