Greywacke 2013 Wild Sauvignon and Pinot Noir

Last month, Kevin Judd, his son Alex Judd and Richard Ellis paid a visit to Wellington to show the hospitality trade the full range of Greywacke wines, including the latest 2013 Wild Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. It was the first time I had tried these wines, and I was very impressed with them (click here to see my report). The ‘Wild Sauvignon’ is arguably the signature wine for Greywacke, as it incorporates over 20 years of developing an alternative and more complex style of Sauvignon Blanc for Kevin Judd, who began bottling an experimental wine with the 1992 vintage at Cloudy Bay, using grapes from the vineyard he and his wife Kimberley owned at the time. The Greywacke ‘Wild Sauvignon’ is one of the most successful of the sophisticated Sauvignon Blancs from Marlborough today. Achieving a similar level of success, in a shorter time, Kevin Judd’s Greywacke Pinot Noir is one of Marlborough’s most sought-after. The wine is delicious and sits comfortably in the upper echelon for the region. Here are my ‘Feature Reviews’ of the two 2013 wines.
