Selected for the 2020 Fine Wines of New Zealand List


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Exotic tropical notes of pawpaw and pineapple, some pink grapefruit and red delicious apple, a smoky dukkah-like fusion of roasted hazelnuts and spices, a layer of flaky pastry with lemon curd custard. A unique and seductive sweet-savoury concoction that is both highly concentrated and very dry – a tight but evolving wine with great power and potential."


Rated Excellent, 5 Stars & 94/100 NZ Wine Rater, July 2021 (2018 Vintage)
"This is a very intense, complex, funky, voluminous nose with lemon-rind, grapefruit, and peach fruit with buttered popcorn, and freshly baked whole-meal bread barrel-ferment characters. A rich, opulent wine with a creamy mid-palate texture but plenty of salivating, fresh acidity to balance. A smart, satisfying wine with a lot to offer."


Reviews for the 2017 vintage below…


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"The vigorous, youthful 2017 vintage is bright, light yellow/green, with a fragrant, complex bouquet. Mouthfilling, it has deep, vibrant grapefruit and peach flavours, finely integrated oak, slightly smoky notes, and a long, savoury, harmonious finish. Best drinking 2022+."


5 Stars & 96/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2021 (2017 Vintage)
"A magnificent rendition; the seductively expressed bouquet shows white flesh peach, fig, lemon peel and spicy oak notes with a hint of flinty nuance. It's mouthfilling and persistent on the palate, exhibiting terrific fruit power combined with multi-layered mouthfeel, making it gratifying and hugely appealing. At its best: now to 2030."


5 Stars Yvonne Lorkin, May 2021 (2017 Vintage)
"The butterscotch-dusted, peach crumble-crammed, pineapple-prickled, creamy, toasty complexity of this chardonnay is outrageously good. Outrageously I tell you. If I could rate this 6 stars out of 5 I would."


93/100 Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous (2017 Vintage)
"I agree with Greywacke's founder, Kevin Judd, that Marlborough Chardonnay is still waiting to be discovered. This taut, savoury style has lovely richness on the midpalate. It is not shy and retiring with its flint, smoky bacon and toast characters, derived from a combination of winemaking techniques, both barrels and solids. It is deeply satisfying despite its tense, youthful character. This wine will be released in 2021 and if you put it in your cellar and forget about it for five years, there's no need to worry."


92/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2017 Vintage)
"Rich wine that gains concentration and ripeness from being late-picked and using a high proportion of Mendoza clone. Almost luscious chardonnay with honey, ripe peach, nectarine, bran biscuit, roost ginger and spicy oak flavours."


5 Stars & 19/20 (95) Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews, May 2021 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright, pale yellow-gold with some depth and a green hue, slightly lighter edged. The nose is full, well-packed with nuances of brioche, roasted nuts and barrel spices, underlined grilled pineapple, ripe stonefruit and chalky mineral. Medium-full bodied, the palate is filled with grilled pineapple, peaches, preserved lemon, grapefruit zest, flavours have good depth, enriched by well-proportioned spices, vanilla, toasted hazelnuts, along with brioche melba toast. Brilliant acidity cut through a creamy palate, unveil fine-textured flinty phenolic, carries nutty components to a lengthy, powerful finish. The wine has great concentration and breadth, full of elegant interest. Match with roast goose and crayfish thermidor over the next 5+ years. Primarily Mendoza clone, plus Clone 5, the majority of fruit was sourced from Brancott Valley and Fairhall, with the remainder from Renwick and Rapaura. Handpicked, high ripeness levels, whole bunch pressed, some full solids, fermented with indigenous yeast in French oak barriques to 14.2% alc, 20% new oak. Occasional lees stirred and full MLF, aged in oak for 18 months."

  • 5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
