After searching the world for the perfect place to grow cool-climate wines, the Thomas family established the Greystone Vineyard on the slopes of the Teviotdale hills in the Waipara Valley in 2004. We planted 39 hectares of the 153 hectare property of predominantly north-westerly facing land, concentrating on matching blocks with clones and varieties. There were many options with a range of altitudes from 60m to 150m above sea level and soil profiles from light clays through to those rich in limestone content. While Pinot Noir makes up over 60% of the plantings we could see the potential for other varieties in the region and planted blocks of Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and even a small block of Syrah.
What The Critics Say
95/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim
"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. $42.00. www.greystonewines.co.nz. July 2019." Drink 2019 - 2025
93/100 Bob Campbell MW
"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. 27/6/2019." Drink 2019 - 2026
