    Wai (water) Para (sediment) – aka Muddy Water!

    Muddy Water wasn’t created in a marketing room somewhere in the big smoke, it was named after the land the wine’s crafted from. Simple as that. The name might not sound all that fancy but the wine certainly is. Produced by the crowd at Greystone and taking an entirely down to earth approach to wine making, certified organic and all hand crafted.

    Our Pinot Noir is more grace than power…a nod towards Old Europe” they’ll tell you. Master of Wine Bob Campbell scored this latest 2018 vintage a decent 93/100 and said “Savoury pinot noir that’s more vinous than fruity, with a mix of dried herb, red and black fruits, baked-earth and subtle spicy flavours. Good now, better later.”

    We’ll tell you if you prefer a Pinot Noir that’s more Burgundian, more earthy in style, this is for you. Certified organic – it’s good for your mouth and the planet! Drink now to 2026.
