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?
From three separate blocks of Sauvignon Blanc, a traditional Bordeaux clone provides a classical backbone, while two Loire clones add tropical fruit characters to the blend. Ripe peach, apricot and nectarine flesh aromas with delicate floral highlights. Palate is generous with luscious fruits, creamy texture and a defined finish. A well-rounded, structured and unique style. A classy New Zealand Sauvignon that will match well with citrus based fish dishes or anything with a strong lemongrass flavour.
