    Sorry, this limited release is a sell out!

    95 points. 96 points. 95 points. 96 points. 96 points. Not bad score to get from Bob Campbell (Master of Wine) for your first four vintages. It’s fairly early days for Greystone’s Erin’s Reserve Chardonnay label but it’s fair to say this $100 Chardonnay sits at the big boys table of NZ Chardonnays.

    It’s the pinnacle of Chardonnay in the Waipara region and the very best that Greystone produce. Just one hectare of Mendoza clone Chardonnay from their Brothers’ Block, situated 130m above sea level and sitting on a limestone hill. Small yields of exceptional grapes, it’s hand picked, whole bunch pressed and barrel aged for 15 months with full malolactic fermentation.

    Scoring this one 96 points, Bob said “From Mendoza clone chardonnay grown on limestone soils in a hillside vineyard. Aromatic wine showing impressive concentration with peach, stone fruit, brioche, hazelnut, ginger, struck-flint, grapefruit and citrus flavours supported by tangy acidity. A classy wine that makes a strong statement.”

    They also produce bugger all of it – around 70 six packs in total. You know it’s seriously limited when each bottle is individually numbered!

    Whether you’re flush with cash and simply drink nothing other than the best, or you’re into collecting and cellaring your wines this is is a must try. Drink now through to 2023.
