Kevin Judd Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

2017 vintage. Drank early May 2019.
Pale yellow with hints of green. Flowers and fresh grass on the nose. Very smooth intake on the palate, minor steel sharpness, lemon and grass. Nice wine.

Bobs Cuvee,
250 cases, surprisingly only 13.3 Abv
The 08 Greywacke was a bit more complex & meatier, this is more subdued. But still a nice bottle if you can find one

"Church vineyard." From the upper Ahr, with a higher percentage of slate and greywacke, this is coursing with mineral tension, dark fruit, and fine oak integration on a sturdy medium frame. Winner — 2 years ago

Again, I’ve said it before, and here again.
Sauvignon Blanc treated as Chardonnay can be glorious!

Cool - found a bottle at auction back in 2011 that I am still holding on to. Love the Bevan Syrahs and they have always been better aligned with my budget than the Cabs/Bdx blends.


Syrah Eddie's Patch Greywacke Vineyard 2016

The ‘Eddie’s Patch’ is a two-acre steep east-facing hillside parcel of vines that is set on rocky and gravel soils. rocks and gravel. A darker color than the ‘DuMol Estate’ Syrah, this shows really nice range from dark fruits to bacon fat to Umami on the nose. The palate has a good combination of weight and tension, showing downright delicious dark fruit and citrus rind flavors, with stony undertones. Lithe and delicious, this beautiful Syrah will continue to evolve well over the next fifteen plus years. Drink 2019-2033- 94 — 3 months ago

Cloudy Bay

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Cloudy Bay’s 33rd vintage. I’ve been a fan since their 12th. In fact, their 1996 was my epiphany wine; it was THE bottle that started it all. Founded in 1985 by David Hohnen of Margaret River’s Cape Mentelle along with its first winemaker, Kevin Judd, who would go on to spend 25 years there before creating his own label, Greywacke. Judd is widely considered as the pioneer responsible for elevating New Zealand wine to its current status. Judd also happens to be one of the best wine photographers in the world (I highly recommend his ‘The Landscape of New Zealand Wine’). Cloudy Bay was acquired by LVMH (Louis Vuitton Möet Hennessy) in 2003. Production of the 2017 vintage was down due to Cyclone Debbie. All fruit that was not harvested prior to the storm was discarded. Lime oil and white grapefruit combine with lemongrass and apricot, and will have you bracing for a razor sharp acidity to come, but what follows is superb balance. There’s a ping of acidity that’s just enough, which allows the flavors to linger just a little longer than usual. Still a fan. — a year ago
