Greystone Chardonnay (Waipara) Organic 2019
New Zealand / Canterbury
Andy's Tasting Notes
A generous style of Chardonnay with a pleasing palate of tropical fruits, coconut, baked nuts, creamy oak and a refreshing mineral laced finish.
Member of Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand. Estate vineyards are managed organically.
“Fantastic bouquet with aromas of a complex and detailed expression. Aromas and flavours of pure white and yellow fleshed stone fruits, citrus, apple, lees and a chalky limestone minerality. On the palate the wine has a detailed texture from acidity and fruit spice, careful use of barrel and plenty of lees autolysis. Fresh cashew nut and oyster shell, apple blossoms and white peach flavours. Lengthy finish leaves me wanting the whole bottle to my self. Drink now and through 2025+.” 96 Points, Outstanding.” camdouglasms.com

Established in 2004, Greystone draws its name from the steep and unique limestone clay hills in Waipara Valley, North Canterbury. With the aim of making exceptional wines from its unique terroir, since 2014, Greystone has managed its 33-hectare vineyard organically. The team are continually searching for new ways to fully reflect the terroir, including vineyard ferments, which capture the vines’ wild yeasts in situ, while exposing the wine to the elements – the ultimate in natural winemaking?
For a relatively young wine company, Greystone has twice won Decanter trophies for Best Pinot Noir as well as earning the ranking of Top New Zealand Chardonnay in 2018. More recently, Greystone was Raymond Chan’s 2018 Winery of the Year and winemaker, Dom Maxwell, was named 2018 New Zealand Winemaker of the Year by Gourmet Traveller Wine.
