FORBES MAGAZINE "Meet Kevin Judd, New Zealand Winemaker And Photographer Extraordinaire" (Tom Hyland)
, Aug 2018
"Aromas of gooseberry and spearmint. Medium-bodied, with a rich mid-palate, very good persistence and zingy acidity. Classic varietal character, lovely harmony. 2-3 years, perhaps longer. Beautiful Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Excellent."
Review in THE SUNDAY TIMES (Will Lyons), Mar 2018
"Born in England, Kevin Judd was the winemaker at Cloudy Bay before setting up on his own. Today, his delicately pale sauvignon blanc is one of Marlborough’s best. The 2017 is summer itself, replete with passion fruit and gooseberry."
