Organic Pinot Noir 2017, Greystone

£25.85 per bottle

About this wine

Greystone Pinot Noir displays a delicate nose of both red and black wild berries, and their signature Greystone savoury flavours. The palate is full and structured with fine tannins and juicy acidity.

93 Points – Bob Campbell (Master of Wine) “Medium-bodied pinot noir with cherry, berry and stemmy/crushed stem flavours. A youthful and, at this stage, slightly grippy wine that will mellow with a little bottle age. Pinot with personality and character.”

92 Points – Wine Advocate “Greystone’s 2017 Pinot Noir ratchets up the intensity from the Nor’wester, but it bears a distinct stylistic resemblance. Yes, there’s a touch of new oak, but those cedar-spicy notes are tempered by savory hints of sous-bois and root vegetables and joined by dark cherries on the medium-bodied palate. It’s a bit more concentrated and tannic as well, but it’s right in line with the other elements, showing excellent balance and length on the finish.”

95 Points – Sam Kim (Wine Orbit) “Youthful yet splendidly complex, the wine shows dark cherry, ripe strawberry, toasted spice, game and floral aromas on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that is supple and beautifully flowing. The wine offers lovely fruit purity backed by seductive savoury nuances, finishing impressively long and engaging. At its best: now to 2025.”

94 Points – James Suckling

Winestate Magazine (Michael Cooper) “Certified organic, this deep ruby red was partly fermented in the vineyard and barrel-aged for 10 months. It has a highly fragrant, savoury bouquet, leading into a mouth-filling, notably complex wine with strong, spicy, nutty flavours, rich and firm. Full of personality, it’s very age-worthy.”

    string(578) "If Cabernet Sauvignon is the king of wines then Pinot Noir is the wine of kings. So delicate, pure, feminine and graceful, it is arguably the finest variety in the world, responsible for the great wines of Champagne and Burgundy. Temperamental, yes, and difficult to cultivate, but can any other grape offer such dimensions of flavour or intellectual gratification? I would struggle to find one stronger! Summer berry compote flavours, with redcurrant and pink petal aromas, it is often pale in the glass, yet can offer depth and vigour simply unachievable from any other grape."
