Greywacke Chardonnay, 750ml
Kevin Judd left Cloudy Bay to set up his own outfit, Greywacke. We’ve been drinking the diamond-like sauvignon blancs for a couple of years but this is the first release of chardonnay. Judd is a talented photographer. His pictures heighten detail and intensify shading so that you can’t drag your eyes off them. The wines do the same; this chardonnay (wild yeast fermented, French oak, not fat at all despite the alcohol) repays attention.
