Beskrivelse

Cloudy Bay-vinmagerens egne vine

Kevin Judd har gennem et kvart århundrede været som chief winemaker hos legendariske Cloudy Bay, hvor han satte Sauvignon Blanc fra Marlborough på vinverdenskortet. I 2009 realiserede Kevin en mangeårig drøm, og etablerede sit soloprojekt, Greywacke. Greywacke er en type småsten, som man finder overalt i New Zealands flodlejer, og som også er rigt forekommende i Marlboroughs vinmarker, hvor druerne til Greywacke- vinene dyrkes.

Marlboroughs bedste underområder

Druerne til Greywacke-vinene stammer fra Wairau og Southern Plains, som er to af Marlborough-distriktets bedste underområder. Her har Kevin Judd tegnet langtidskontrakter med en lille håndfuld af de bedste vindyrkere, som fremstiller druer i præcis den stil og kvalitet, som han søger. For Kevin Judd er det afgørende, at druerne er så aromatiske som overhovedet muligt, og at de har en syngende frisk syre til at afbalancere frugten.

Greywacke Chardonnay

Druerne til Greywacke Chardonnay er håndhøstet I Brancott Valley i Southern Valleys iMarlborough. Efter en nænsom presning er vinen gæret på vildgæren, og efterfølgende lagret på franske egetræsfade, heraf 25% nye fade. Greywacke Chardonnay har en stor bouquet af tropisk frugt med strejf af nødder og vanilje. Smagen er fyldig og komplekst sammensat, og munder ud i en skøn frisk finish med mineralske noter..

Anmeldelser

  • 17,5/20P - Jancis Robinson MW maj 2016: "Two-thirds low-yielding Mendoza clone, the rest clone 95. Fruit was sourced from the lower reaches of the Brancott Valley and Fairhall, grown in gravelly, clay-loam soils, the remainder coming from Rapaura, grown in young alluvial soils containing high proportions of New Zealand's ubiquitous greywacke river stones. Vineyards hand-picked separately at high ripeness levels and whole-bunch pressed using very low maceration press cycles. The resulting juice was settled and racked to French oak barriques (20% new, medium toast). Half the wine was left on full solids. Spontaneous, warm and slow indigenous-yeast fermentation, full malo. 15 months in oak. TA 7 g/l, pH 3.39. Smoky and toasty on the nose but really tight and crisp on the palate - impressive freshness with such ripe fruit, deep and long."
  • 91P - Vinousmedia.com v/Stephen Tanzer d. 17.05.16: "(a 50/50 blend of the high-acid Mendoza clone and clone 95, from hard-harvested vines on clay soils in central Wairau up to 20 years old; 50% of the juice goes straight to barrel; fermented in barrels with wild yeasts): Bright medium yellow. Very ripe yellow fruits complicated by a sulfidey, leesy complexity and a hazelnutty nuance. Tactile, concentrated and strong, with a note of oak char adding another dimension without overwhelming the grapefruit and stone fruit flavors. At once structured and delicate. The Mendoza clone is high in acidity, notes Kevin Judd, and this wine always goes through malolactic fermentation."
  • 92P - Wine Enthusiast Magazine marts 2016: "This is a fairly big, weighty Chardonnay, but one whose alcohol levels are balanced by crisp acids. Aromas of smoke and toasted grains lead the way, followed by hints of whole wheat toast and lemon curd. The long, mouth-watering finish brings the citrus elements back to the fore. Drink now-2018."
  • 91+P - Robert Parker December 2015: "The 2013 Chardonnay has an understated, very classy nose of white peaches, fresh apples and lemon curd with hints of honeysuckle, almonds and baker's yeast. Medium- bodied, the intensity of flavors - both citrusy and savory - does not disappoint with gorgeous ginger and nut layers and a lovely long finish."
  • 93P - Wine Spectator oktober 2015: "Aromatic and expressive, with smooth cedar, toasted hazelnut, baked apple and poached pear notes, graced by accents of nutmeg, lemon meringue pie, fig and chamomile. The finish goes on and on, showing juicy accents. Drink now through 2030. -MW"
