Pinot Noir Greywacke 2019
Greywacke is the winery of Kevin Judd, who was winemaker at Cloudy Bay for 25 years. In 2009 he set up for himself, and sources select parcels of grapes from growers around Marlborough. I reckon his wines consistently beat his famous alma mater for quality, interest and value for money. We met Kevin and his wife Beverley several times during our 2014 tours to New Zealand, and he has spoken at wine events I have run in the UK.
This wine is deep ruby red in colour with vibrant aromas of red fruit and spices: juicy cherries, strawberries and cranberries. An opulent style of Marlborough Pinot layered with notes of star anise, clove and dark tobacco and subtle hints of rose and lavender. On the palate, it has fine tannins, a classic cool-climate vibrancy and a smoky, long finish.
Rack of lamb pairs beautifully with this wine, as does grilled salmon. Gruyere and brie are both cheese that work well.
