OBC Hosts Greywacke Winemaker Lunch at The Nickel
The Beverage Analyst
The wines of Marlborough, New Zealand, are known worldwide for their precision, intensity and distinctiveness, bequeathed by an extraordinary climate and a diverse collection of soils. The expression of unique sites within this environment lifts the wines of Greywacke to another level.
Winemaker Kevin Judd takes a low-intervention approach to winemaking in order to coax the finest nuance of individuality from each hand selected vineyard parcel, while maintaining the aromatic intensity for which Marlborough is renowned.
Purity of varietal expression is a forgone conclusion in the fruit Kevin works with; indigenous yeasts are then left to run their course in new and older French oak barriques, ensuring ample texture and complexity in these compelling wines. Already garnering worldwide acclaim, they show a common thread of layered concentration, fine structure and invigorating freshness.
