Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Aromatically inviting with golden kiwifruit, nashi with mild oak and coconut husk. The palate is full with generous flavours supported by fine grained oak phenolics and ripe acidity.

We hand pick our Chardonnay blocks separately before whole bunch pressing. We foot crush our B95 clone from clay soils to obtain phenolic presence. All lots were transferred into French Oak barriques (25% new) where they went through natural fermentation over several months and natural malo-lactic fermentation in mid-Summer. The wine ages in barrel without racking for 11 months in oak before estate bottling without fining."

5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2018 Vintage)
"Rich, appealing, creamy-textured chardonnay with layers of white peach, lanolin, ginger, brioche and subtle spicy flavours. A seamless, integrated wine that defines subtle power. So approachable now it's hard to imaging it getting any better, but that's an exciting possibility."

95/100 Cameron Douglas MS, May 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"A immediately captivating and complex bouquet with aromas of wild white flowers and honeysuckle, sweet grapefruit and white peaches, red apple, new-ish French oak scents and a core of minerality. On the palate – delicious; complex, layered and lengthy. Flavours explode on the palate with apples and sweet citrus, minerals and fine oak finishing with a flinty, mealy feel. Complex, lengthy and delicious! Best drinking from today and through 2024."

5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"This is stunningly beautiful; the complex bouquet shows ripe stone fruit, rockmelon, vanilla and hazelnut characters with a hint of flint. The palate offers terrific fruit purity and power, while remaining graceful and harmonious, creamy texture and juicy acidity. It's expansive and seductive with a lengthy engaging finish. At its best: now to 2026."

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"Already very expressive, the distinctive 2018 vintage of this organically certified wine was hand-harvested, barrel-fermented and matured for 11 months in French oak barriques (20 per cent new). Bright, light yellow, it is weighty and fleshy, with concentrated, ripe, peachy, slightly citrusy flavours, fresh acidity and a very finely textured, long finish. Best drinking 2021+."

Reviews for the 2017 vintage below…

94/100 Jamie Goode, November 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"From three blocks. The Saddle was Syrah and swapped over to Chardonnay five years ago, and only had a little. The Erin is on limestone, and there’s also a clay block near the cellar door. Lovely richness and toastiness here with spice, peach, pear and some mineral notes. Opulent, rich and harmonious. This has everything: a really complete with richness and also focus."

18.5/20 Joelle Thomson, DrinksBiz Magazine, April 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"North Canterbury is home to some of the country’s most impressive X-factor wines, including this outstanding Chardonnay from Greystone. This was made from grapes that were hand-picked in mid-April 2017, then whole bunch pressed into French oak (20% new) where they went through wild fermentation and natural malolactic the following summer. The wine was then barrel-aged for 11 months, adding body, weight and complexity."

Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.
