I think we all know that local wine heroes Greystone produce some of the best Pinot Gris that New Zealand has to offer and now Decanter 'The world's best wine magazine' are telling us they produce some of the best Pinot Gris in the world! Bravo


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Light golden in the glass, the nose is full of stone fruit and spice. A concentrated and powerful palate, initially smooth rounded and complimented with refreshing acidity. Wonderful now, especially with food, or age for four plus years."


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"A stunning expression of the variety; the inviting bouquet shows white flesh stone fruit, rockmelon, poached pear and floral characters with a touch of oatmeal complexity. The palate delivers excellent concentration and generous mouthfeel, gorgeously enhanced by velvety texture and perfectly pitched acidity. At its best: now to 2024."


Reviews for the 2016 vintage below…


No.3, World's Best Pinot Gris Buys, Decanter, May 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Sappy, stony hints over quiet oak: a limey warmth behind. deep and pure, with apple and lime richness, a minty freshness and a lick of honey, held in a dry frame. accomplished and finely judged. Proof that Pinot Gris has a fine-wine future in New Zealand."


5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, June 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Dry, tasty and textural pinot gris with ripe pear, toast, apple and brioche flavours. A classy wine that includes a portion of barrel fermented and matured wine to add a pleasing texture and additional layers of flavours."


5 Stars & 19.0/20 (95) Raymond Chan, April 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is full, broad and voluminous with deep and rich aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits along with nuances of tropical fruits and exotic florals,nuances of honeysuckle, and steel, mouthwatering minerals. Subtle complexing nutty lees elements emerge with aeration. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has richness and weighty flavours of ripe yellow stonefruits along with subtle tropical fruit elements, exotic florals, unfolding honied notes. Mineral and nutty detail add interest. The palate has weight, body and presence, but retains a degree of elegance with integrated acidity, the wine carrying smoothly along a fine line, leading to a full, lingering, dry finish of rich stonefruits and exotic florals. This is a rich-fruited dry Pinot Gris with layers of exotic fruits, florals, honey and minerals on a palate with strong presence and length. Match with pork and veal dishes, and Asian cuisine over the next 4-5+ years Fruit from a sloping single block with wind-blown loess over clay with limestone deposits, fermented in tank with 10% indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned French oak to 13.5% alc. and 6.0 g/L RS, the blended wine undergoing batonnage for 6 weeks. 2,300 cases made."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"The stylish 2016 vintage is a slightly off-dry style (6 grams/litre of residual sugar), estate-grown in the Omihi Vineyard and mostly handled in tanks; 10 per cent of the blend was fermented with indigenous yeasts in old French oak barrels. Light lemon/green, it is mouthfilling and richly varietal, with generous, ripe stone-fruit and spice flavours, a slightly oily texture and a lasting finish."


91/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, June 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Spice, almost to pepper, peach and lychee. Glycerol feel, bold flavour, all ripe pear and tropicals, subtle powdery texture to close. Perfume trails in aftertaste. Classic kind of NZ in style, to generalise. "
