Indeed it has a lot going for it. It tastes of flint and gravel passionfruit and (subtle) rosewater. Green melon too. oomph and texture without it being too in-your-face. The end result: drinkability plus.

This intriguing white delivers a complex aromatic note that includes whiffs of petrol oolong tea mineral and lanolin giving way to an equally complex flavor profile. Crunchy green apple Meyer lemon and melon flavors are refreshing balanced and persistent on the finish. Drink now. -MW

Highly aromatic nose combines grapefruit rind underripe pineapple white pepper fresh herbs and stony minerality. Rich pliant and fairly full but with a juicy sappy quality to the orange blossom and spice flavors. In a rather forward style but bright framing acidity gives it definition and thrust. Finishes with excellent length. Greywacke is the new project of sauvignon blanc guru Kevin Judd who put Cloudy Bay on the map during his 25 years as winemaker there.

Former Cloudy Bay winemaker Kevin Judd's new label displays a vibrant pungency to its leafy aromas then opens up on the palate to add gooseberry and grapefruit notes. It's refreshingly medium bodied with a slightly creamy texture and a long finish filled with pink grapefruit. - J.C.

Soft weighty and accessible Sauvingon Blanc with hints of leaf nutty yeast lees mineral and bright tree fruit flavours. Exquisitely balanced wine with a lengthy finish.
