Critic reviews
"Layered with red apple blossom, cherry, strawberry, hints of pomegranate molasses and black tea, the 2021 Pinot Noir is floral and pretty on the nose. In the mouth, the wine is all of these things, lingering through the detailed and finessed finish. The silty tannins speak to the Southern Valleys vineyard from which the fruit is sourced. There is density ensconced with the light framework of the wine. Very good! 13.5% alcohol, sealed under screw cap."
Erin Larkin, November 2023

"Greywacke's Pinot Noir is ever improving, with the 2021 showing fine fruit and precision. There are interesting aromatic layers from the usual Pinot fruit descriptors to cola nut, cloves and spice. You can expect a richness of fruit while a portion of whole bunches has helped with both the lift and line of this wine. The tannins provide a mouthcoating, lick-your-cheeks sort of texture."
Rebecca Gibb, January 2023

"Dark chocolate, walnuts, dried flowers, orange peel, and lead pencil. Medium-bodied with firm and racy tannins that give a linear feel and focus to this wine. Compact and polished tannins that run deep into the wine. Solid and curated texture. Drink or hold. Screw cap."
James Suckling, November 2023

"Promising flinty reduction on the nose with aromas of ripe dark fruits and assertive spicy notes. Concentration of fruit and harmonious structure, lovely grip with a spiciness on the finish."
