Greystone Pinot Noir Waipara 2012 – $$$
I’m in Timaru for the night, on the way down to Twizel in South Canterbury for business. Picked this wine up to drink with a client.
This is a gorgeous pinot noir that has been attracting plenty of attention in wine shows and from critics, and did very well at the Worth Cellaring Pinot tasting I attended last year. I have a couple of bottles in the Pool Room.
Deep ruby red, almost black. 13.5%. Wonderfully fragrant aromatics – fruity and earthy. Dense and full-bodied with great fruit weight and flavours of spice and vanilla and black cherries and red roses on the front and mid-palate, with savoury characters and fine silky tannins at the finish. This a great value Pinot.
