Greywacke Climbs the Ranks of Great NZ Pinot Noir

The Seventh Great New Zealand Pinot Noir Classification 2014

by Matthew Jukes and Tyson Stelzer

Just five years from its founding, Greywacke has been promoted from 2 stars to 3 stars in the Seventh Great New Zealand Pinot Noir Classification.

“In 2014, The Great New Zealand Pinot Noir Classification highlights 122 estates, representing the top quarter of New Zealand’s 493 Pinot Noir makers. This reinforces the strength of endorsement of achieving even our One Star rating. Every estate awarded a coveted position in this list is producing this mesmerizing grape variety at a level of sophistication that we believe is worthy of your attention….

Fourteen estates are to be applauded on their superb performances in recent years, and have been promoted one or more levels: Archangel, Astrolabe, Black, Burn Cottage, Cambridge Road, Charcoal Gully, Dog Point, Envoy, Esk Valley, Greywacke, Kusuda, Mount Edward, Terra Sancta and Zephyr.”
