The 2020 Greystone Vineyard Ferment is the fourth release of this very special, unique wine. What started out as an interesting experiment to see what would happen, has morphed into producing something that has created interest around the wine world. Fermenting in the vineyard is an ultimate expression of vineyard terrior. We just love the delicacy and nuance that this Pinot displays while not compromising on any flavour concentration or power. A Pinot Noir that Dom is rightly very proud of. We have a very limited allocation.

Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"Our unique take on Pinot Noir captures our place, right in the heart of North Canterbury. Our handpicked fruit is fermented in the vineyard rows where it was grown. Open to the elements and exposed to natural and wild native yeasts, the fermentation responds to the rhythm of the season to create a truly unique vintage.

Hand picked and fermented outside in the vineyard rows where the fruit was grown. We use a separate destemmer, that lives in the vineyard, so the fruit never left the rows. We allow the fruit to start fermentation in its own time and respond to the rhythm of the season. Therefore the fermentations are driven not only by indigenous vineyard yeast but also the ambient temperatures. So we are extending the vintage influence on the wine itself. We gently hand plunge the vats once per day and then allow a short maceration post-ferment for balance and harmony. The young wine is then aged for 15 months in aged oak barrels before being estate bottled – unfined and unfiltered."

Rated Outstanding & 96/100 Cameron Douglas MS, August 2022 (2020 Vintage)
"Fantastic bouquet with an immediate sense of place and time. Aromas of chalk and clay soils mix seamlessly with ripe fruit aromas of baked cherry and raspberry, plum and dried herb. The mineral core reflects soil and ripeness of fruit an excellent vintage. On the palate – exacting and seamless with reflections of the bouquet then layers of baking spices, lees and mild toasty barrel qualities. A delicious mineral and ripe fruit centric wine. Fantastic sense of place and time with a lengthy finish. Best drinking from 2023 through 2030+."

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2020 Vintage)
"This red is estate-grown and hand-picked at Waipara, in North Canterbury, and made by fermenting the grapes in the vineyard, using indigenous yeasts. The 2020 vintage has deep, moderately youthful colour. Full-bodied, it is beautifully poised, very savoury and subtle, with fresh acidity, excellent complexity and a finely textured finish. Well worth cellaring."

95/100 (2020 Vintage)
"Dripping with sour cherries, sour plums, licks of baked rhubarb and a delicious savoury texture provide plenty to sink your teeth into. Swirl the glass to energise dried petals too. Gamey with sauteed mushrooms and dried herbs adding interest, there is a lengthy earthiness that just purrs. Give it some time to breathe and scents of strawberries rise up, but it's that delicate textural drive that has me hooked. It's considered with a fabulous drive. Dangerously medium-bodied, what a magnificent drink this is. Wrap two hands around it and sip slow. Bliss."

5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, July 2022 (2020 Vintage)
"Deliciously textural wine that is smooth and seamless with quite a savoury, earth and dried herb influence to its cherry/berry and floral flavours. Long, complex and ageworthy. (Fermented in the vineyard to make a stronger connection between the wine, vineyard and vintage)."

Greystone Wines is a family-owned vineyard located in the Waipara wine region in Canterbury, New Zealand. Since its establishment, the vineyard has quickly gained a reputation for producing some of the finest wines in the region, particularly their award-winning Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The vineyard is situated on the slopes of the Teviotdale Hills, which provide an ideal microclimate for growing grapes. The soils are rich in limestone, which gives the wines a unique mineral character. Greystone Wines is committed to sustainable viticulture practices, and they use a range of organic and biodynamic methods to manage their vineyards. They also have a strong focus on low-intervention winemaking, which allows the grapes to express their natural terroir.

The winery produces a range of wines, including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Pinot Gris. As mentioned, all of the wines are made using traditional methods, with a focus on minimal intervention and maximum expression of the vineyard's unique terroir.

One of the standout wines from Greystone Wines is their Pinot Noir. Past recognition includes being judged Best International Pinot Noir by Decanter Magazine, with its complex nose of dark fruit, spice, and earthy undertones and a palate that is rich and full-bodied. The Chardonnay is another standout, with a beautiful balance of fruit and acidity, and a long, elegant finish.

Visitors to the vineyard can enjoy tastings and tours, and there is also a restaurant on site that serves locally sourced, seasonal food. The vineyard's stunning location, coupled with their commitment to sustainability and low-intervention winemaking, makes Greystone Wines a must-visit destination for wine lovers visiting the Waipara region.
