Greystone Pinot Gris 2016

Light golden in colour with a nose rich in nutmeg, pear and peach with hints of cream. Exhibiting considerable weight with ripe nectarine, peach and baking spices, the palate stretches out with fine chalky tannins and fresh fruit-laden acidity.  Drinking beautifully now or cellar up to five years.

 

REVIEWS & ACCOLADES

18.5+/20 Raymond Chan

Bright straw-yellow colour with pale lemon-green hues, lighter edged. This has a fresh, full nose of white stonefruits along with white florals harmoniously layered with a subtle amalgam of nuts and minerals. The nose is fresh and expressed with clarity and focus. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly concentrated with a core of white and yellow stonefruits entwined with subtle lees and mineral elements. The wine flows with good energy and slipperiness along a fine, smooth, seamless line, and carries to a long, elegant, lingering finish with nuances of minerals and stonefruits. This is an elegantly concentrated, dryish Pinot Gris with refined stonefruit and floral notes along with complexing nutty lees and minerals on a smooth, slippery and lively flowing palate. Serve with mildly spicy Asian and Middle Eastern fare and most white meat courses over the next 4+ years. Clones 2/15 and 2/21 from calcareous clay soils, fermented with wild and organic yeasts in stainless-steel with 5% in seasoned barriques to 13.5% alc. and 10 g/L RS, the wine spending 6 months on lees, the tank portion undergoing batonnage. 564 cases made.
