Wine Spectator
Kevin Judd is a Marlborough pioneer and the founding winemaker of Cloudy Bay. He's spearheading a movement in small-production, artisanal wines in a region known for large scale operations, focusing on lower yielding clones to enhance quality and on wild yeast fermentations to create his signature style.

One of Marlboroughs pioneering winemakers, Kevin Judds career is intrinsically linked with Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Established in 2009, Judds label Greywacke (pronounced gray-wacky) is the fulfillment of a long-held dream. Named after New Zealands prolific bedrock, Greywacke was originally adopted by Kevin and his wife Kimberley as the name for their first Marlborough vineyard in Rapaura, whose soils have an abundance of these river stones. Greywacke sources fruit from mature vineyards within Marlboroughs central Wairau Plains and the Southern Valleys. Also an established professional photographer, Judds home in the Omaka Valley overlooking Marlboroughs picturesque vineyards provides inspiration for both his passions.
About Greywacke
Greywacke is the Marlborough label of Kevin Judd, and the fulfilment of a long held dream. The name Greywacke was adopted by Kevin and his wife Kimberley for their first Marlborough vineyard located in Rapaura, named in recognition of the high prevalence of rounded greywacke river stones in the soils of the vineyard. Kevin registered the name back in 1993 with the vague notion that he might one day want to use it on a wine label of his own.
This quality focused winemaking venture sources fruit from mature vineyards within the central Wairau Plains and the Southern Valleys. These prime viticultural sites are cultivated using yield restricting vineyard management techniques and intense canopy management regimes. A number of the vineyards are owned by the Sutherland family, while complementary grape parcels are acquired from additional select sites, all located within these sub-regions.
The wines are made by Kevin at Dog Point Winery in the lower Brancott Valley, a facility extended to him by long-standing friends and industry colleagues, Ivan Sutherland and James Healy.
The Greywacke portfolio is primarily based on two varieties, sauvignon blanc and pinot noir, the sauvignon blanc being produced in two distinctly different styles. In addition to this core range
of three wines, there are also limited edition releases of chardonnay, and three aromatic varieties – pinot gris, riesling and gewurztraminer. Kevin's signature vineyard photographs provide the unmistakable identity of the Greywacke range.
