Description

Greystone are famous for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the very temperamental wine growing region of Waipara where only the best wineries survive. Dom Maxwell was rewarded for his talents by being named as New Zealand Winemaker of the Year 2018 by Gourmet Wine Traveller Magazine, beating stiff competition from the likes of, Tony Bish (Tony Bish Wines & Sacred Hill), Nick Picone (Villa Maria Group), Peter Cowley (Te Mata) and Chris Scott (Church Road). This drive and determination for producing immaculate wines is reflected in Greystones latest release of their 2019 Vineyard Ferment Pinot Noir. What started off as an experiment in 2012 has blossomed into a beautifully perfumed, elegant silky, concentrated Pinot Noir with a naturally energy and vibrancy that will see this wine at its best at least 5 years from vintage. Small vats of hand harvested Pinot Noir (20% Whole Bunch) were left to ferment naturally without any human intervention, in the very same blocks where the grapes were harvested. This means it's very unlikely you're not going to get a more terrior-driven wine. The warm dry days meant that fermentation kicked off fast, with the cool nights slowing fermentation allowing for good colour and phenolic extraction. Once fermentation was complete the wine then spent 15 months seasoned French oak, before being bottled unfined, unfiltered and released.

Smells

Stunning bouquet delivering aromas of toasted sourdough, exotic spice, roasted chestnuts, all underpinned by a plethora of wild red and dark berries.

Tastes

An excellently structured Pinot that speaks of North Canterbury, more restrained in fruit aromas and flavours, rather more complex, interesting descriptives spring to mind. Dark spices reign with a herbal, spicy undercurrent that engages and intrigues. The tannins cling to the cheeks and dont let go, in a harmonously and seductive manner. The after taste is long and lingering of milk chocolate and toasty oak flavours. Delicious on every level. The acid is there but perfectly woven throughout demonstrating a seemless nature. Wow, a wine that will cellar 8years+ but quite frankly it is irresistible now.
