Greywacke is the wine label of long-time Cloudy Bay winemaker Kevin Judd and is named after the rounded river-stones that are scattered through the soils of his vineyards. Sourcing his fruit from premium vineyards in the central Wairau plains and Southern valleys, Kevin produces a brilliant range of wines, primarily focusing on Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, with a small amount of Pinot Gris, Riesling and Chardonnay. As you would expect from the founding winemaker of New Zealand's most famous wine, the quality throughout the Greywacke range is exceptional. Not satisfied with being one of the country's most influential winemakers, Kevin is also one of the world's premier wine and vineyard photographers
