New vintage – 5 Stars yet again

In stock


Local heroes and star North Canterbury winery Greystone consistently produce one of New Zealand's very best Pinot Gris. Even amongst the challenges of the less than desirable 2017 season they have come through with an absolute beauty. It sure shows what great care and attention in the vineyard and winery can do to offset the fickleness of mother nature. Bravo!

Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Light golden in colour with a nose of fresh stone fruits, wild fennel and hints of cream. The palate flows with fine-grained phenolics, integrated fruit-laden acidity and an abundance of Nashi pear and white peach flavours."

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"Already delicious, this ripely scented wine is full-bodied (13.5% alc/vol) and fleshy, with highly concentrated stone-fruit and spice flavours, a hint of ginger, good complexity, a creamy texture and a dry finish. Certified organic."

5 Stars & 18.5/20 (93) Raymond Chan, November 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright, even straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues. The nose is softly rich and concentrated with well-packed aromas of white and yellow stonefruits along with honied notes and yellow florals, and a suggestion of spice. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has soft, rich flavours of white and yellow stonefruits and subtle notes of honey and exotic florals. The palate has a rounded and unctuous texture with balanced, integrated acidity, underlined by some alcoholic power and drive. The wine flows smoothly to a lingering finish of stonefruits and honey. This is a softly rich and unctuous dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, honey and floral flavours with good drive and smooth flowing linearity. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3-4 years. Fruit picked over 4 passes, fermented in tank with 15% in seasoned French oak puncheons and barriques to 13.5% alc. and 4.1 g/L RS, wine aged 4 months on lees undergoing batonnage. Certified AsureQuality organic."

92/100 Cameron Douglas Master Sommelier (2017 Vintage)
"Fragrant, varietal and pure with abundant fruit and spice aromas of Gris – honeysuckle, peach, white peach and quince. On the palate – equally engaging with a core of tree and white fleshed stone fruit flavours; some residual sweetness and plenty of acidity bring balance and a long harmonious finish. Drink now and through 2022."
