Greystone 2015 Waipara Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris

11-Feb-2016
Greystone’s first wines came from fruit from vines on the banks of the Waipara River. However, the Thomas Family established their true home on the limestone and clay slopes of the Omihi district in 2004, producing their first wines from the site in 2008. The initial releases were deemed outstanding for their brilliant varietal character and clear-cut style. Greystone has evolved as the vines have grown in maturity, and the viticultural work of Nick Gill and winemaking guidance of Dom Maxwell have taken the wines upwards in interest, texture and complexity, to represent the terroir in a more complete and natural fashion. This is evident especially in the Pinot Noir wines where indigenous yeast, on-site fermentation has been employed. The white wines have also moved away from straightforward fruit expression as well, and they now are considerably more sophisticated. Here, I review the new 2015 Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris. www.greystonewines.co.nz
