This is the classic Babich style that complements a variety of foods, or drinks equally well on its own.

This is a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc which is consistently produced in a fuller, riper, softer style that develops well. Clean, fresh and tropical, with fruit from several vineyards situated throughout Marlborough.

After harvest the grapes were quickly crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks where the juice was fermented at controlled cool temperatures to capture the intense varietal flavours. After extensive tasting trials by the winemakers, the wine was blended, finished and bottled.

The fruit for Te Kahu is grown in the Hawkes Bay Gimblett Gravels Vineyard, which has one of the warmest, driest, most sundrenched climates in New Zealand.

JAMES SUCKLING 99 POINTS - "A striking wine thanks to the many complex facets to its personality. This is the zenith of the Escarpment pinot noir collection, Read More...
a wine that gathers the personalities of its siblings and adds its own layer of class and complexity to the mix. Orange blossom, ripe dark cherries, freshly tilled earth, deep-wound woody spices, dried plums and even some beef stock and a hint of pepper all sit on the nose _ complex and regal. The palate is textured like deep velvet, profoundly flavored and woven together with deep-seated tannins, seamless and long. Every type of cherry, blueberry or plum is layered in soft, fleshy sections, building in layered waves of tannins as this wine goes on and on. The acidity finally creeps up to illuminate the finish. A profound pinot noir. A triumph not only for Escarpment and Larry McKenna, but for New Zealand pinot noir at large."

crusted herbs, toasted nuts, dark chocolate and glac_ orange peel, not to mention wet earth and crushed violets. The complexity is deeply integrated. On the palate there's striking clarity and focus: The tannins are fine-tuned, super smooth and rippling with energy, driving long, smooth and clear dark cherry and plum flavors that run alongside and wash up through the finish. A classic rendition of pinot in the iron fist and velvet glove style."

which help drive a lengthy finish. A taut, thoroughbred that needs time to unlock its obvious complexity. "

WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS - "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. "

We’ve long been fans of NZ Pinot Noirs and we think this one will convince many more people as to how good they can “do” Pinot! The nose is beautifully Burgundian, with notes of cherry, cherry tobacco and smoked meats lightly touched with cinnamon and autumn spice and a wash of nice minerality. Pretty Pinot, indeed! The firm but finely structured palate blends red and black fruits (cherries and blackberries with cherry liqueur) with charry, smoky oak and rich licorice. This is a deliciously aromatic wine with concentrated varietal character. Further notes of black tea and a touch of lilac florals and red plum in the background endeared us to this one.

We are huge fans of New Zealand wines so it's natural that we would follow Kevin Judd and what he's doing... Kevin's career is intrinsically linked with the global path of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. He was born in England, grew up in Australia and moved to New Zealand in 1983; soon after he became the founding winemaker at Cloudy Bay and remained there for their first 25 vintages. In 2009, Kevin unveiled his personal venture, Greywacke (pronounced "grey-wacky"), named after New Zealand's prolific bedrock, and fulfilling a long-held dream of his and his wife Kimberley. Once we tasted his wines we were instantly smitten-- these are wines of character, showcasing the terroir they come from, the high quality of New Zealand grapes and the knowledge and talent of the winemaker behind it all. And the critics agree:

"Some of New Zealand's most exciting emerging stars include Greywacke... Kevin Judd takes Marlborough Sauvignon to new heights." - Lisa Perotti-Brown, eRobert Parker.com
