Kevin Judd may have been born in England, but he made his name on the other side of the globe at Cloudy Bay in New Zealand’s South Island. During his tenure, he produced a series of Sauvignon Blancs that changed vinous history – and forged a nice side line as a skilled landscape photographer. Now running his own Greywacke winery, he’s a wonderfully dry, laconic interviewee. Listen to us chat about hyperfocal distances, Marlbourgh’s maritime climate, how to get the best out Chardonnay and why he hates being called a twitcher.
Don’t forget, Cork Talk is now available on Spotify. You can listen to this week’s episode, plus my back catalogue of interviews with some of the world’s most extraordinary wine figures.
