Greywacke Pinot Gris $22

Greywacke is a new project in Marlborough, New Zealand. Shouldn’t we be talking about Sauvignon Blanc? No! We’re talking about Pinot Gris, try to keep up!

The wines produced at Greywacke seem to be the leading edge of the next generation of New Zealand’s wines. These will present us with more risk taking, fewer commercial wines, and further exploration of the islands’ terroir. In the case of this Pinot Gris, what we seem to have is a wonderful expression of the style. The wine is just off dry, made with enough natural yeast and neutral wood fermentation to make for a compelling wine that marries style and soil. It could come to define New Zealand’s Pinot Gris, so catch a bottle while you can.

    Hi GDP

    As always your articles are informative and interesting, as it is always good to showcase different interpretations of varietals and how terroir, wine making style and local conditions influence the finished product.

    However I noticed a lack of any reference or mention of Central European Pinot Gris/Pinot Grigio as now in Austria, Germany and Hungary there are wineries and vineyards producing outstanding Pinot Gris wines. Yes they are different than Alsace and Alto Adige, but they are well made, fruit driven and offer quality for a reasonable price.

    Cheers!
