Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Bright golden hue in the glass and a rich nose layered with peach fuzz, cashews, apricots and custard. Palate is rich and full bodied with liquid honey texture. Subtle oak marries flavours of honey, peach and cream with flinty, salivating acidity lingering on the tongue."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"Greystone views Chardonnay as 'the finest white wine variety'. The outstanding 2015 vintage is exceptionally rare, just 44 cases were produced. Grown on steep, north-facing limestone slopes, it was hand-harvested, fermented with indigenous yeasts, given a full, softening malolactic fermentation, and matured for 15 months in French oak casks (50 per cent new). Bright, light lemon/green, it is a highly fragrant, weighty wine (14.5 per cent alcohol), tightly structured and youthful, with intense grapefruit and peach flavours that have effortlessly lapped up the new oak. Showing lovely mouthfeel, complexity and length, it's a memorable mouthful. Best drinking 2019+."
5 Stars & 96/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, March 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Made from grapes grown on Greystone’s steepest block of limestone-rich vineyard with a North-West aspect. Rich, nutty nose with a hint of caramel. Intense, flavoursome wine with cashew nut, peach, tree fruit, spicy oak and bran biscuit flavours. High alcohol (14.5%) adds a little warmth to the palate. A perfect balance of acidity prevents any suggestion of cloying in this big, powerful chardonnay."
5 Stars & 19.5/20 Raymond Chan, March 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, lighter on the edge. The nose is full and softly concentrated with good density of ripe citrus fruit and yellow stonefruit aromas harmoniously melded with mealy notes and nutty oak, along with toasty elements, unfolding creamy barrel-ferment and flinty nuances. Full-bodied, the palate is well-packed with deep and dense flavours of ripe citrus fruit and yellow stonefruits interwoven with mealy notes, nutty oak and flinty minerals. The palate has a very concentrated, flavoursome core with power and drive, the wine flowing along a firm textured line. Subtle barrel-ferment creaminess and integrated acidity balances the phenolics, and the wine carries to a fulsome, lingering finish of mealy stonefruits and nutty detail. This is a rich, powerful and concentrated Chardonnay with densely packed, complex flavours of mealy stonefruit and nuts. Match with rich poultry, pork and veal dishes over the next 5-6+ years. Mendoza clone fruit from the ‘Brothers Block’, hand-picked and indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 15 months in 50% new French oak with 100% MLF. 44 cases made."
