The wine combines fabulous fruit purity with seductive complexity, displaying fragrant aromas of dark cherry, plum, smoked game, dark mushroom and black olive on the nose, leading to a beautifully weighted palate that is silky and flowing. The wine offers refinement and poise, while delivering loads of delectable flavours with a powerful finish. At its best: now to 2022.
Elegant, precise, poised Pinot Noir with bright cherry, red rose and subtle spice flavours. The wine has an appealing purity and balance. It's not a blockbuster but it does have good power and intensity.
There's an almost rose-like dusty floral note on the nose of Greystone's 2016 Omihi Pinot Noir. On the palate, multitonal cherry fruit takes charge, delivering a pristine beam of flavor focused by crisp acids and silky tannins. Although raised in 30% new oak, it's barely noticeable, save for some attractive wisps of vanilla on the lingering finish. (JC)
Even dark ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the edge with slight purple tints. The nose is softly full with aromas of dark-red berry fruit harmoniously entwined with dried herb and earthy notes and nutty oak. The aromatics form a soft, but well-packed heart. Medium-full bodied, the palate has integrated and seamlessly interwoven flavours of dark-red berry fruits melded with dark and dried herbs, a little earthiness and nutty oak, unveiling lifted elements. The flavours form a sweet and rounded core with good depth and presence. The mouthfeel possesses a smooth-flowing line with soft, supple tannins and integrated acidity, and the wine carries to a moderately concentrated, gentle finish. This is a harmonious, softly rounded Pinot Noir with savoury red berry fruits, dried herbs, earth and nutty detail on a supple, smooth palate. Serve with slow-cooked game meat and casseroles over the next 4 years. Hand-picked mixed clone fruit from contracted Omihi vineyards, vines 18-22 y.o., indigenous yeast fermented with 8% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine on skins for up to 30 days and aged 10 months in 30% new French oak barriques.
