From the hands of Kevin Judd (chief winemaker at Cloudy Bay for its first 25 years), this sensational new Sauvignon Blanc has taken the world by storm. He seems to have re-captured the same level of i ntensity and multi-layered taste sensation thatmade Cloudy Bay itself so famous. However, this has an added accent of minerality which shines through and defines the wine.

In the vineyard

Fruit is sourced from various vineyard sites in and around the Brancott Valley and the central Wairau Plains, specifically in Woodbourne, Renwick and Rapaura. Soil types vary from the young alluvial s oils of Rapaura and Renwick, which contain highproportions of greywacke river stones, to the older and denser clay loam gravels of the Southern Valleys. The majority of the vineyards were trained usin g the divided Scott Henry canopy management system, with the balance being on two or three cane VSP (vertical shoot positioning). All Greywacke wines are produced from vineyards that are accredited to the Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand (SWNZ) program, and most of the vineyards are in conversion to become certified organic.

In the winery

Harvested during the cool (often cold) conditions of night, the
grapes were pressed relatively lightly and the resulting cool juice is settled prior to fermentation. The majority of the juice is ferme nted cool in stainless steel tanks using cultured yeast and a portion is filled into old French oak barriques.
