Natalie's Score: 91/100

Fresh and captivating with nervy acidity for shellfish. The name of this winery, Greywacke, is actually pronounced Greywacky. Kevin Judd produces this signature New Zealand Sauvignon Blanch with classic herbal aromas, fresh cut grass and asparagus with mouth-watering juiciness. Such a food friendly wine. Zesty, crisp, clean and medium-bodied. Ultra-refreshing as an aperitif or companion to line-caught halibut.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: cheese, shellfish, Caesar salad, corned beef and cabbage, turkey pot pie.

Reviews and Ratings

Kevin Judd, of Cloudy Bay wine fame, produces this signature New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc (2015) with classic herbal aromas, lemon grass and light green vegetable aromas with mouth-watering acidity. Such a food friendly wine. Greywacke is a type of sandstone that is hard and dark in color. It has different sized grains of quartz, feldspar, and small rock fragments set in a compact, fine clay matrix. It is mostly found in Palaeozoic strata. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
