Greywacke is the most common and widespread bedrock in New Zealand and winemaker Kevin Judd found the rounded sandy river stones in the soil throughout the very first vineyard he owned in Rapaura. He loved the name and in 2009, created the Greywacke label. Kevin was the founding winemaker at Cloudy Bay and spent 25 years building the worldwide reputation for their wines. He also is a world-class photographer and took the picture that became the instantly recognizable design for the Cloudy Bay label. For Greywacke, Kevin sources the finest grapes from the Wairau plains and Southern Marlborough valleys and uses low intervention techniques to make two styles of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir as his primary wines, with a bit of Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Gris to boot.
