A deliciously succulent and rich Riesling from experts in classic Marlborough varietals. Grown organically near the mouth of Brancott Valley, this vibrant and not strictly dry Riesling was grown on the kind of gravel and clay soils that are usually associated with Marlborough's high-end Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. A wine of serious enjoyment and potential, the Greywacke Riesling is delicious.

92 / 100

Huon Hooke

"Light yellow hue, with a big sulfur whiff at first, over the top of honey and floral aromas, the bouquet reminding more of German wine than Antipodean. The wine is dry and lean in the mouth with good intensity and length. There is a tickle of sweetness at the core, a halbtrocken style perhaps, but the finish is dried off cleanly by vibrant acidity. A fine wine that should repay cellaring."

"Moderately intense, off-dry riesling with lime zest, white flowers, struck-flint, oyster-shell and green apple characters. The wine builds attractive sweet-and-sour tension. Power, purity and a mouth-watering finish."

James Suckling

"Smoke, steel and flowers with some subtle pear character follow through to a medium body, firm acidity and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap."
