Greystone Thomas Brothers Waipara Valley Pinot Noir (2018)

The 2018 vintage (4.5*) was grown in the steep, exposed Brothers Block, hand-harvested, fermented with indigenous yeasts, matured for 15 months in French oak barriques (66 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Ruby-hued, it is very savoury and supple, with fresh, youthful cherry, plum and spice flavours, and nutty, earthy notes adding complexity. Best drinking 2022+. Certified organic.
