The fruit was grown at Wrekin Terrace Vineyard in the Brancott Valley, a valley floor site on gravelly clay-loam soils. The grapes were pressed using low maceration press cycles, then the clear juice racked to fermentation vessels. Half of the juice was inoculated in a stainless steel tank using cultured yeast and the balance was filled into French oak barriques where it endured spontaneous yeast fermentation. At the end of fermentation all the wine was transferred to a stainless steel tank. The blended wine was then filled into old barrels where it remained on yeast lees for a further four months.
In 2009, Kevin Judd, the founding winemaker at Cloudy Bay and the man to direct that company's first 25 vintages, decided to establish his own label. He named his label Greywacke, after New Zealand's prolific bedrock. Kevin Judd's quality focused winemaking venture sources fruit from mature vineyards within the central Wairau Plains and the Southern Valleys. These prime viticultural sites are cultivated using yield restricting vineyard management techniques and intense canopy management regimes.
Very ripe, concentrated fruit has created an opulent style, rich in aromas of yellow apples, nectarines and figs. The palate is generous and textural with flavours of freshly dried apricots and doughy wild fermentation complexity - a tangy, full-flavoured wine that finishes with a faint hint of sweetness.
