Please see below further information about the winemaker Kevin Judd and the Greywacke Range:

Greywacke is the exciting solo venture of Kevin Judd, formerly the chief winemaker at Cloudy Bay for 25 vintages, and was instrumental in the international recognition which New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc enjoys today. The name ‘Greywacke’ was adopted by Kevin for his first Marlborough vineyard located in Rapaura in recognition of the high prevalence of rounded greywacke river stones in the soils there.

The debut wine under the Greywacke label was the 2009 vintage with his Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc displaying the hallmarks of Kevin’s famed style: ripe fruit, fine balance, great concentration and superb varietal intensity. Grapes come from prime, low yielding vineyard sites in and around Marlborough’s Southern Valleys.

Kevin Judd is also New Zealand’s finest wine photographer and has recently published ‘The Landscape of New Zealand Wine’, showcasing the best of his vineyard photography from throughout the country’s wine regions.

Come along to this exclusive event and sample all seven wines in this fantastic range, enjoy a host of fantastic canapés… and talk wine with one of the most successful winemakers working in the world today. This event looks set to sell out quickly… make sure you reserve your place early by calling 0131 556 5565 or emailing scotsman-events@thescotsmanhotel.co.uk
