2019 Vineyard Ferment Pinot Noir Greystone

£36.00

“The 2019 Pinot Noir Vineyard Ferment is literally made in the vineyard; the fermentation takes place among the vines, and the result is fragrant, pure and poised. This is the fourth such release from Greystone, and it has many layers of aromatic intrigue, from pretty red cherry coulis and floral notes to fennel and gamy characters. It offers excellent depth and fruit concentration but retains a sense of transparency and freshness. Although the wine spent 15 months maturing in oak barrels, the newest wood was third-fill, thus there’s very little oak in evidence on the nose or palate, allowing the fruit to shine. The tannins are mouth-coating and display a fine chalky texture on the lengthy finish. A sensitively made, unadulterated expression of Pinot Noir. Unfined and unfiltered with 20% whole bunch incorporated.”

95 Points, Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous

“Much deeper, more garnet, almost crimson, colour than the 2017 and 2018. Mid garnet. Really interesting savoury nose! Grown-up wine with delicacy but character and assertiveness and the structure to age well. Hint of cranberry and some mushroom character underneath. Light tannins and just the right amount of acidity bode well. Delicate but not wimpy.”
