Greywacke Pinot Noir
Description: "Elegant with concentrated red cherry, violet, mixed spice and coffee flavours. Sweet fruit is balanced by fine tannins which help drive a lengthy finish. A taut, thoroughbred that needs time to unlock its obvious complexity. " - 96 points, Decanter

"Fresh and aromatic, with green matcha tea, sea salt, lavender and melon notes to complement the pure macerated raspberry and juicy cherry fruit and generous velvety tannins. Gains complexity and nuance on the long finish. Drink now through 2027. 750 cases imported. " - 92 points, Wine Spectator

"Made with grapes coming from a 15 year old vineyard in the Brancott Valley, just down the road from Clayvin, that is planted mainly with 777, 115 and 667 clones, the medium to deep ruby-purple colored 2012 Pinot Noir reveals aromas of red currants, black cherries and raspberry leaves with some loamy characters plus hints of roses and black tea. The concentrated, medium-bodied palate has a great savory fruit character supported by firm, grainy tannins through the long,earthy finish. It is very taut and needs time." 92 points, The Wine Advocate

Winemaker's Notes: "A seductively aromatic concoction of vine-ripened red and black berries lightly sautéed with dried oregano and some cloves. A highly perfumed, feminine style of Marlborough pinot with exotic fruit sweetness and a delicate smoky infusion. The palate is rounded with a fruitcakey richness, considerable weight and classic cool-climate vibrancy."
