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, a sedimentary rock which is widely found in Marlborough.
Fruit was sourced from various vineyard sites in and around the Brancott Valley and the central Wairau Plains, specifically in Woodbourne, Renwick and Rapaura. Soil types vary from the young alluvial soils of Rapaura and Renwick, which contain high proportions of greywacke river stones, to the older and denser clayloam gravels of the Southern Valleys.
A tangy salsa-like combination of honeydew melon, yellow peach and pawpaw tossed with some red capsicum, a sprig of spicy tomato leaf and a twist of grapefruit zest - this is an intensely aromatic, mouth-filling wine with a refershingly crisp, flinty finish.
