Incredible buying on this awesome Pinot Noir from Greystone. True to its North Canterbury roots it shows rich dark fruits supported by a savoury back bone of herbs, spice and meat. Nicely rounded in the mouth it has gently drying tannins that give it great structure and as Michael Cooper says, it shows "greater richness and complexity than most sub-$30 Pinot Noirs."


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"A complex nose of red fruits, baking spice and subtle floral notes. The nose is matched with a bright and alluring palate of summer berries, red liquorice and raspberry compote. Medium-bodied, with structured tannins and a lingering finish.

All batches were fermented in small lots with wild yeasts and allowed to macerate on skins, with daily hand plunging for approximately 30 days. The young wine was gently pressed to French oak barrels, where it aged for 10 months before blending and bottling on-site without fining."


93/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, May 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Gently aromatic wine with bright cherry, crushed herb, anise, spice and nutty oak flavours. A supple, accessible, medium-bodied Pinot Noir with character and sophistication. It offers good value at this price."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Wonderfully fruited and immediately appealing, the bouquet shows dark cherry, plum, warm spice and cedar characters, leading to a succulent palate that is supple and beautifully rounded. The wine offers terrific fruit intensity and silky texture, finishing long and delicious. At its best: now to 2023."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"From vineyards ‘scattered across the region’, the refined and harmonious 2017 vintage was grown at Waipara, fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured for 10 months in French oak barriques. Fragrant and savoury, it is full-bodied, with youthful, ripe, plummy, spicy flavours, showing greater richness and complexity than most sub-$30 Pinot Noirs, and the structure to mature well. Best drinking 2021+."


91/100 James Suckling, August 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"This is a dark-fruited, rich and succulent, cherry-flavoured Pinot that has immediate appeal and delivers so much rich, fresh cherry flavour in a simple, drinkable guise."


90/100 Wine Advocate, July 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"The 2017 Nor'wester Pinot Noir (a reference to the prevailing winds) offers up a pleasing combination of mossy oak, savoury, meaty notes and ripe cherries. It's medium-bodied, with a soft, dusty tannin structure and mouthfeel, and a lingering, silky finish. Nicely done."
