K&L Notes

This fantastic new release from NZ wine legend Kevin Judd is flat out delicious and a smoking deal with our hot pricing. This wine sold out quick last year and is in limited supply. For decades Kevin Judd was the founding winemaker and guiding genius behind Cloudy Bay. He is one of the most respected, experienced and talented winemakers in the southern hemisphere. The 2013 Pinot has lovely exotic aromas and flavors of lifted Asian spices, sandal wood, ripe red fruits, floral hints, ground clove; the palate is perfectly proportioned, medium bodied, with soft fruit, silky tannins and spice that lifts the finish with well integrated oak teasing it out long on the palate. Very expressive and representative of this excellent vintage. A well judged synthesis of a great vineyard and expert winemaking talents; this is sure to be a winner.

    This is such an exotic, fragrant wine...it demonstrates why I love Pinot Noir so much! There's a symphony of ripe forest fruits, baking spices, agarwood, and star anise. I like how Kevin has managed to keep this wine very bright and aromatic whilst also embracing the richness and textural density that naturally comes from the heavier clay soils of Marlborough's Southern Valleys. This is a beautiful example of what the region can do with Pinot Noir when it's planted in the right spot and crafted with love and passion. Very classy and worth the full attention of any Pinot lover.

    Light red cherry in color, with great lift and acid structure. The fruit is filled with red cherry and red berries, with just a hint of spice that gives the wine more expression and personality. Just a delicious, versatile Pinot Noir from our friends at Greywacke. Enjoy!
