REVIEWS & ACCOLADES

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.

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. 

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.
