Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Light straw in colour with a welcoming nose of lime essence, cashew cream and toasted pastry. Palate is long with a mineral core and ripe citrus and stone fruits. A light brush of phenolics inspires extended ageing potential. This is a complex wine with drive and power."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"The classy 2015 vintage was hand-picked, fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak barrels (20 per cent new), and given a full, softening malolactic fermentation. Light yellow/green, it is full-bodied, with concentrated, peachy, slightly buttery flavours, finely integrated oak, good acid spine, excellent complexity and a long finish."
5 Stars & 19.0-/20 Raymond Chan, October 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"Brilliant straw-yellow with golden hues and some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is full and softly voluminous with well-packed aromas of ripe citrus fruit harmoniously melded with creamy and nutty barrel-ferment layers along with nuances of lemon-curd MLF and toasty oak, unveiling subtle flinty lees detail. Medium-full bodied, the palate is rich and succulent with ripe citrus and stonefruit flavours entwined with tropical fruits and layers of cream, nutty oak. Nuances of buttery MLF, toasty oak and mealy, flinty lees add complexity. The mouthfeel is full, soft and lusciously rich, with a deep, accessible core, underlined by very fine-grained textures. The acidity is softly ripe, and lends poise; the wine carrying to a very long, elegant finish of stonefruits, nuts and cream. This is a softly full and layered Chardonnay with rich stonefruit and complexing creamy, nutty and toasty nuances. Match with roast pork over the next 4-5 years. Hand-picked fruit, WBP with 5% foot-crushed, and indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 27% new French oak with 100% MLF. 900 cases made."
94/100 Bob Campbell MW (2015 Vintage)
"An enticing aroma of baking bread and white peach with additional layers of citrus, grapefruit and toasted nut on the palate. A smooth-textured chardonnay in a very appealing and accessible style."
94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, October 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"​Immediately engaging bouquet with aromas of ripe peach, lemon and a flinty higher solids ferment complexity, the core signature of Chardonnay remains revealing an earthy mineral quality. On the palate - firm, youthful, fresh, fruity and quite dry; the core of the palate is the texture combined with playful lemon and peachy fruits, the impact of acidity and oak add texture and length; a delightful and different example with a long finish. A very memorable and engaging example."
Yvonne Lorkin, April 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"It’s been 11 years since the Thomas family first put vines in the ground at Greystone and then harvested for this vintage.  The chardonnay is now really hitting its straps.  Rich and golden in the glass and smelling of, oh lord, just the most delicious melange of almond biscuits rubbed with grapefruit pith and dipped in peach juice and then crumbled on buttered toast.  Luxuriously creamy and darn lovely to drink."
