Greywacke Pinot Noir 2018

Principally sourced from a block in the Brancott Valley, Marlborough. Light ruby colour, with a delicate appearance, but intensely perfumed with a nose laced with root beer, red cherry, chamomile, raspberry, clove, dark plum and hint of shoe polish (in a good way!). Initially lean and taut, this opened up beautifully over the course of evening (and, indeed, better the next day), revealing a plush core of red fruits, overlaid with layers of herbal, spice and savoury flavours. Mocha, leather, mushroom, star anise, sumac and tobacco all noted as the wine develops. Tannin is supple but plentiful, and acidity is juicy and restrained. More spice on the finish of good length. 93pts.

  1. I love the New Zealand wine reviews on this site. So glad I discovered it. My new go-to for information on local wine.
