Greywacke Chardonnay 2016

Kevin Judd’s Greywacke Chardonnay is an outstanding style from the Marlborough region of New Zealand. Fermented with indigenous yeast in French oak barriques (20% new) it goes through complete malolactic fermentation, spending 18 months in oak with occasional lees stirring, producing a savoury, rich and powerful wine with great texture and concentration. An enticing combination of pink grapefruit, burnt orange and white nectarine interwoven with aromas of smoked almonds, hazelnut, and freshly cut hay. The savoury notes carries through onto the rich, textural palate, evidence of this wine’s low-intervention winemaking. An intricate bone-dry style that is highly concentrated with a distinct flintiness, tight structure and crisp, citrus finish.
