About this wine

Greystone’s off-dry Pinot Gris is full of generous richness, flavour concentration and length. The acidity is balanced perfectly with a slight sweetness. Drinking  beautifully now or will cellar up to five years.

Champion Pinot Gris – 2019 NZ Organic Wine Awards

94 Points – Bob Campbell MW The aroma reminds me of freshly-baked apple pie with a seasoning of cloves. Weighty pinot gris with an initial hint of sweetness that is perfectly balanced by fruity acidity and fine, peppery tannins. A classy wine that is good now but no rush.”

94 Points – Sam Kim (Wine Orbit) This is seriously good. Opulent and stylish, the wine shows golden peach, poached pear, spice and rich floral aromas on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that is wonderfully weighted and creamy. The wine offers layers of silky texture and expansive mouthfeel, enhanced with subtle sweetness, leading to an impressively long velvety finish. At its best: now to 2023.”

90 Points – Cameron Douglas (Master Sommelier) “Embracing and exciting bouquet of Gris – aromas and flavours of organic heirloom pears, white pepper, baked apple goods and wild flowers. Just dry with some residual sweetness contrasting the warming alcohol, medium+ acidity, weighty with fine to pure fruit flavours. A leesy spice layer adds complexity and depth. Well made and ready to enjoy. Drink from today and through 2021.”

5 Stars – Michael Cooper/Winestate Magazine This powerful, off-dry wine is already drinking well. Sturdy (14.5% alc/vol) and concentrated, it has generous stone fruit flavours, with hints of honey and oak adding complexity, and strong personality”

18.5/20 – Joelle Thomson “North Canterbury is home to some of the country’s most impressive X-factor wines, including this outstanding Chardonnay from Greystone. This was made from grapes that were hand-picked in mid-April 2017, then whole bunch pressed into French oak (20% new) where they went through wild fermentation and natural malolactic the following summer. The wine was then barrel-aged for 11 months, adding body, weight and complexity.”

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