Established in 2004, Greystone draws its name from the steep and unique limestone clay hills in Waipara Valley, North Canterbury. With the aim of making exceptional wines from its unique terroir, since 2014, Greystone has managed its 33-hectare vineyard organically. Impressively for a relatively young wine company, Greystone has twice won Decanter trophies for Best Pinot Noir as well as earning the ranking of Top New Zealand Chardonnay in 2018. More recently, Greystone was Raymond Chans 2018 Winery of the Year and winemaker, Dom Maxwell, was named 2018 New Zealand Winemaker of the Year by Gourmet Traveller Wine. Fermented in the vineyard, to capture both the wild yeasts in situ and allow the vagaries of the seasons weather to place a defining mark upon the wine. Complex and earthy. This Pinot shows minerality, spice and subtle wild berries on the nose. Textural with finely-integrated fruit tannins. A wine with flow, harmony and wonderful length.
