Greywacke Pinot Noir Marlborough 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points James Suckling: A bright, crunchy and slightly earthy pinot that comes from the Southern Valleys of Marlborough. This has a spiced-red-cherry and smoky edge as well as raspberries and red plums. The palate's very composed and settled, and the 20% whole bunch use is evident but really nicely worked into the wine. The tannins are assertive yet smooth thanks to clay soils; they frame red-cherry fruit and engender a succulent texture. Drink now and for 5+ years. (8/12/16)

External Reviews for Greywacke Pinot Noir Marlborough

Vintage: 2011 11/14/2013

Pure fruit with strawberry and flowers. Very aromatic undertones of lemon rind. Full body with firm and lightly chewy tannins. Wonderful tannin tension to the fruit. Keeps it in line. Ready to be bottled. James Suckling.

Youthfully vibrant at the rim with a dark, opaque garnet center. Reined in and a touch backwards due to its youth, the aromas tend towards a more savoury section of the aromatic spectrum with black cherry fruit aromas forming the foundation and core ...

Smooth and elegant, this offers cigar box aromatics to elevate the already sophisticated mix of mineral, cedar, spice and ripe plum notes. This has a plush frame and a long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2016. 250 cases imported. -M.W. Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from Marlborough in New Zealand. 2010 Greywacke Pinot Noir 750ml
