Greystone Pinot Noir 2016
Dark cherry hue of medium depth. Delightful savoury / toasty / manuka woodsmoke bouquet. Crisp, fresh, spicy and tangy on first tasting and although the tannins initially seem a little dry by the time the glass is finished the overall impression of this wild ferment wine with 11 months in French oak (30% new) is soft, full, generous and creamy with juicy cherry and plum fruit, touches of smoky bacon, beautifully proportioned woodsmoke, classical thyme-like herbs and a kiss of anise. When you get to the end of the glass you want another.
