GREYSTONE PINOT NOIR NORTH CANTERBURY 17
Greystone is one of North Canterbury's wine stars situated on the slopes of limestone rich hills in Omihi. All of the grapes that go into Greystone wines are 100% certified organic with BioGro NZ and all are estate grown. No additional fruit is purchased to supplement production, which is one of many incremental steps that go into Greystone's high quality wines.
This wine is one of our favourites here at Regional because it consistently over delivers with savoury flavours reminding many of us of the great mushrooms of the world and the complex taste of outstanding Pinot Noirs. This wine exudes elegance, a silky character and has the ability to age extremely well, thanks to Dom Maxwell's winemaker and great viticulture from the Greystone team in the Waipara Valley, North Canterbury.
This PInot Noir is a must try for Pinot Noir lovers and a must wine for the cellar. It will pay dividends for those with the willpower to keep it for up to a decade.
Certified organic with BioGro NZ.
The Greystone wine story began in 2000 when the Thomas Family bought an old sheep farm on the Omihi hills in the Waipara Valley, North Canterbury. The rolling limestone hills lured this family in and their goal was a single minded one: to make great wines from the limestone rich soils here. Fast forward 20 years and Greystone is one of the great (and, some might say, yet to be fully discovered) wineries in this outstanding wine region. Not least due to the work of winemaker Dom Maxwell and general manager Nick Gill, who began working together in 2005 and has grown along with the brand and quality.
