Greywacke Pinot Noir 2015

Greywacke Pinot Noir 2015 New Zealand Marlborough

$47.95

Greywacke Pinot Noir 2015

This 2015 Greywacke Pinot Noir is another exceptional Pinot release from the team at Greywacke; a highly perfumed style of Marlborough Pinot Noir featuring exotic fruit sweetness, a cedar-like spiciness and a delicate smoky scent reminiscent of lapsang souchong. The palate is dense and generous with ripe cherry-plum richness, some soft licorice and clove and a fine but voluptuous tannin structure.

INTRODUCTION
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.
