Product Overview

The 2016 Greywacke Wild Sauvignon is fermented entirely with naturally occurring yeast. This is an alternative style of Sauvignon Blanc that is both intricate and textural. An inviting combination of lemon meringue, apricot, fresh herbs, and a hint of smokiness lead to a palate that is succulent and packed with stone fruit and vanilla, finishing crisp and long with a flinty dryness.

"Just gorgeous, this is vibrant, fragrant and generous, with honeysuckle, Key lime, lemongrass and fresh ginger notes that mingle with grapefruit and pear flavors. Impressive for the intensity, showing a smooth body, refreshing acidity and long, lingering finish. Drink now. 700 cases imported." -MW, 10/15/18

"Kevin Judd's 2016 Wild Sauvignon features toasty accents to it layers of ripe nectarine and pineapple. It's medium-bodied, reasonably rich and textured on the palate, then it weakens a bit on the finish. Stronger vintages can age up to a decade or more, but I'd suggest drinking this by 2023." -JC, 3/29/19

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Ex-Cloudy Bay winemaker Kevin Judd's wines are never shy and never boring. This wine is an opulent Sauvignon, quite the opposite of the Marlborough style most are familiar with. Wild fermented in oak barrels, it's a heady combo of lemon, toast, salted cashew and wild herb. The full-bodied palate is highly textural but not heavy thanks to a good lick of acidity. Herbs, lemon rind and toasty oak ripple right through the finish." -CP, 5/1/19
