Greystone is 100% certified organic with BioGro. Crop management is done meticulously by hand without herbicides, insecticides or systemic fungicides, using organic methods and biodynamic soil management to proactively promote soil and vine health. It's a hands-on approach that means being intimately connected to the blocks, walking the rows and being attuned to subtle changes in the soil, vines and grapes. It's labour intensive, but it's also how you make truly remarkable wine. For us, it's a labour we love. At harvest we handpick the bunches and bottle unfiltered whenever possible. Bottling unfined and unfiltered reveals more layers and complexity; it's like listening to your favourite album on vinyl and hearing richer, more nuanced tones. It's wine for slowing down and savouring.
Fermented in aged barriques with wild yeast for greater complexity, using a mix of Loire and Bordeaux clones, allowed to age on lees and for partial malolactic ferment to lend it creamy texture and richness. No additions made during fermentation. Unlike any other Sauvignon from New Zealand. Ripe peach, apricot and nectarine flesh aromas with delicate floral highlights. Palate is generous with luscious fruits, creamy texture and a defined finish. Well-rounded, structured and unique style.Download our Liquor Licence
