This is a luscious and off-dry Pinot Gris, a wonderful cocktail of soft sweet figs, poached pears and quince, and a hint of mulling spices and almond crumble. Crisp and powerful on the finish – an excellent match for fragrantly spiced dishes.
Greywacke Pinot Gris
£25.80 Per Bottle
Greywacke was created in 2009 by Kevin Judd, chief winemaker at Cloudy Bay from its inception for 25 years and instrumental in the international recognition which Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc enjoys now. The name ‘Greywacke’ was adopted by Kevin for his first Marlborough vineyard located in Rapaura in recognition of the high prevalence of rounded greywacke river stones in the soils of the vineyard, a sedimentary rock which is widely found in Marlborough. Kevin Judd is also New Zealand’s finest wine photographer and has recently published a book ‘The Landscape of New Zealand Wine’.
