Greywacke 2013 Marlborough Pinot Noir

Most of the New Zealand pinot noirs that we see in Australia tend to come from Central Otago, where the style is generally quite muscular. This Marlborough wine is at the other end of the spectrum; more delicate and elegant, but still with plenty of black cherry flavour and smoky exoticism. It is fragrant and unmistakeably pinot, with some bright fruit, savoury hints and lovely structure. It's made by Kevin Judd, the ultra-talented winemaker who helped propel Cloudy Bay to worldwide recognition. $48.
