Background:
In 2000 the Thomas Family purchased a farm on the Omihi hills and began work to create the Greystone vineyard. From the outset there was one goal; to realise exceptional wines from the unique terroir. By 2004 with the help of Viticulturist Nick Gill they’d planted thirteen blocks across the Omihi slopes. Dom Maxwell became our winemaker and a team was formed in the pursuit of realising the potential of this exceptional site.
Tasting notes:
Light straw in colour with a welcoming nose of lime essence, cashew cream and toasted pastry. Palate is long with a mineral core and ripe citrus and stone fruits. A light brush of phenolic inspires extended ageing potential. This is a complex wine with drive and power.
