Kevin Judd can lay as much claim as any person for the high international profile now enjoyed by Marlborough. After studying at Roseworthy and then working in Australia for a few vintages, he joined Cloudy Bay as their winemaker at its inception in 1985. He was responsible for the groundbreaking early wines produced at Cloudy Bay, wines that paved the way for a whole generation of producers who were able to push on doors that had already been opened by the success of Kevin s wines. He remained at Cloudy Bay until 2009 when he finally agreed to do what his friends had been urging him to do for years: start his own label. Kevin selects prime fruit from selected vineyard sites and this diversity lends great complexity to the final wine.
