Pinot Noir 2016, Greystone

£25.85 per bottle

About this wine

Greystone Pinot Noir displays a wonderful nose of red and black cherry, plum and blue florals. Vineyard elements of spice and blue flowers shine through beautifully into the textural palate of boysenberry and ripened plum.  Long fine-grained tannins threaded with subtle French oak and savoury notes support the fruit throughout. Full bodied, elegant, juicy and perfectly balanced.  Perfect for enjoying with food now or cellaring for 8+ years.

95/100 – Cameron Douglas (Master Sommelier) Complex, layered and intriguing bouquet with red berry fruit, mineral core, a light sulphide moment and well-appointed oak. On the palate – dry, firm and youthful with plenty of acidity, fine tannins and oak as well as a raw energy completing a specific structure. Flavours of red berry fruit continue along a lengthy finish in a light to moderately weight example. Youthful and slowing coming into balance.”

92/100 – Bob Campbell (Master of Wine) “Flavoursome pinot noir with a savoury fresh herb and mixed spice characters, together with ripe cherry, berry and nutty oak flavours.”

19/20 – Raymond Chan Moderately dark, deep ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, lighter on the edge and youthful in appearance. The nose is softly full and voluminous with harmoniously melded layers of ripe, dark-red and black berried fruits entwined with subtle dark herb and earthy complexities, along with lifted violet florals. Medium-full bodied, the palate has mouthfilling, rich and ripe flavours of dark-red and black berried fruits, unfolding subtle dark herbs, lifted florals and savoury, earthy detail. The flavours are harmoniously integrated, forming a softly sweet, packed heart. The fruit is balanced by very fine-grained, flowery tannin extraction providing excellent structure and a degree of finesse to the mouthfeel. The acidity is ripe and balanced, and the wine carries to a full, nuanced, lively finish. This is a rich, ripe Pinot Noir with a harmoniously integrated palate with dark-red and black fruits, soft, savoury herbal notes with floral and earthy detail, on a smooth, fine-structured palate.”

95/100 – Sam Kim (Wine Orbit) It is sweetly perfumed on the nose showing plum, mixed berry compote, vanilla and toasted nut aromas with nuances of game and truffle. The palate is superbly concentrated and multi-layered, delivering gorgeous fruit richness backed by velvety mouthfeel and silky tannins. The wine exhibits wonderful harmony and complexity.”

5 Stars – Michael Cooper “The highly attractive 2016 vintage (5*) was estate-grown, hand-picked and matured in French oak barriques (30 per cent new). Full, bright ruby, it is invitingly scented, full-bodied, savoury and finely textured, with deep, well-ripened flavours, showing excellent complexity and harmony. Drink now or cellar.”

    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."
