2018 Greywacke Marlborough Pinot Gris

91 Points Antonio Galloni's Vinous
In stock
A rich-textured but dry Pinot Gris from Marlborough. Made by the ex-Cloudy Bay people at Greywacke, this wine displays real knowledge of the region and its varieties. Beautifully aromatic in an exotic, sophisticated sort of way, it is rounded and generous on the palate — but not too sweet. Seamless and classy, this is proper wine for the sunny deck or the table.
$28.99 in mixed 6+ or $32.99 per bottle


Pinot Gris

Its Origins

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. 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.

What The Critics Say

91/100 Vinous, Rebecca Gibb MW

"An opulent Pinot Gris with its full-bodied, voluptuous texture. Despite the difficult weather conditions, this wine has overcome the season's challenges; there are rich flavors of jasmine, honey, figs, roses and pears. More sumptuous than sleek, with just enough grip on the finish to provide structure." Drink 2020 - 2023

95/100 Huon Hooke (2017 vintage)

"Light to mid-yellow colour. The bouquet is very ripe and rich, with exotic fruit aromas including spiced poached stone fruits and traces of passionfruit, pineapple and guava. The palate is full and rich, round and almost opulent, with gorgeous texture and harmony, a taste of lychee and a trace of sweetness enhancing its irresistible drinkability. It's veering towards an Alsace vendange tardive style. Delicious! 10 JUN 2020."

94/100 Bob Campbell MW (2017 vintage)

"Ripe, flavoursome pinot gris with stewed apple and pear flavours, together with appealing spice and savoury characters. Made in an off-dry style, with subliminal sweetness on the finish thanks to a juicy cut of mouth-watering acidity. 29 FEB 2020."
