£22.95 per bottle

About this wine

The 2023 Greystone Organic Pinot Gris shows an elegant, finely balanced, richly scented bouquet with aromas of nashi pear, apple & quince combined with subtle hints of baking spice. The palate shows richness and concentration with opulent layers of autumnal fruits, white peach & golden kiwi. A long, luscious finish leads to a lingering salinity.

Winemakers Notes “Picking decisions were taken to maximize fruit expression whilst still maintaining the delicate balance between ripeness & acidity. The fruit was gently pressed with only the free run juice going to tank & a small portion being run to neutral French oak barrels. A slow cool fermentation followed to ensure a purity of fruit & then aged on yeast lees for approximately 3 months to add texture and mouth feel. Both parcels of wine were then blended together adding different layers of texture & additional complexity to the finished wine before being estate bottled here at the Greystone vineyard.”

Ageing potential: Drinking beautifully now or cellar up to five years.

Alcohol: 13% ABV

Thai food screams for Pinot Gris, especially those from New Zealand where the wines’ deeper, honeyed, citrus flavours seem to flow so well."
