Greywacke Pinot Noir 2014

Marlborough, South Island, New ZealandIt's nice to see a well done red variety from Marlborough, forever home of savvy. This was planted on the hills of the Wairau in the southern valleys. Darker, concentrated style, with plum, peppery spices, back raspberries, forest berries bedding a supple, silky palate, and with a nice cedar grip of brisk tannins to the finish. From the Southern Valleys, principally from the clay/loam loess of Brancott / Ben Morven ridge, this is predominantly Dijon 115, 777, 667, and was 20 percent whole bunch, native ferment, plunged 2x daily for a couple of weeks before going into oak (40 percent new) where it was left to rest for 16 months prior to blending.Tasted: 26 October 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 46.00 private wine shops Producer: GreywackeDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
