Greystone Pinot Noir is grown on limestone rich soils on north facing slopes.
The 2017 growing season followed on from a 12 months drought in North Canterbury. The spring was warm, windy and frost free. Excellent conditions over flowering led to even fruit set and a good number of bunches. Just before
vintage was ready to begin two tropical cyclones spun down from the north and created very wet, warm conditions for a period of weeks. Unlike 2014, once the cyclones passed the weather dried up and harvest was able to continue unimpeded by rain.
Dark crimson in colour with a delicate nose of both red and black wild berries, and our signature savoury flavours.
The palate is full, structured with fine tannins and juicy acidity.
