    It’s the pinnacle of Pinot Noir in the Waipara region. It deservedly sits alongside the big boy names of NZ Pinot. It’s Pinot for the high rollers!

    Greystone’s Thomas Brothers’ Pinot Noir 2018 has been released and, like most years, allocations are wafer thin. 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 one you simply can’t be without. Scoring an incredible 96/100 from Master of Wine Bob Campbell, it’s also the No.1 rated 2018 Pinot from Canterbury.

    Bob said “Greystone’s flagship pinot noir is a taut, elegant wine with nicely integrated red fruits, roasted chestnut, hints of floral and violet and a suggestion of saline-mineral character. Built for the long-haul but it can be appreciated now.”

    Produced from Greystone’s “Brother’ Block”, their steepest single block in the Waipara Valley, small bunches that are hand-picked, foot-crushed and fermented in open top vessels and aged for 15 months in oak. Just the fourth ever release of this label, each bottle is individual numbered and will cellar comfortably up to 2028 or beyond.

    Buy some. Drink some. Cellar some. Just get some.
