At latitude 45 degrees south, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Snow topped mountains, rocky ranges and dry tussock hills, a place of climatic extremes, bitterly cold winters, parched soils and discouragingly poor fertility. Designed by the angels in heaven for sublime and stupendous vintages of Pinot Noir. At the very epicentre of the most desirable confluence in Central Otago microclimes is Nanny Goat Vineyard. Conspicuous for her serious weight of fruit, splendid structure and chewy, textural palate, Nanny Goat make a magnificently endowed style, offering the understated power and presence to accompany gourmet game sausages, meaty Mediterranean braises or char grilled rib...

The Greenstone property was acquired by viticulturalist Mark Walpole, Tuscan winemaker Alberto Antonini and Master of Wine David Gleave in 2003. Several different clones of Shiraz are grown to the old Cambrian soils of this splendid vineyard at Colbinabbin. Grapes are hand picked and transported to the Kooyong Winery at Mornington. Grapes are treated to a natural cold soak and vinified through the action of wild indegenous yeasts. After a fortnight's maceration in open top fermenters, the cap is punched down by hand to extract good colour and ripe tannins. Following completion of ferments, Greenstone is matured up to twenty months in a combination of new and prior use French oak barriques.
Deep ruby/ purple coloured. Lifted perfumes displaying a lovely ripe, brambly spicy fruit on the nose. Combines the elegance of mid Victorian Shiraz with the depth and weight that characterise wines from Heathcote. On the palate, the rich, dark plum fruit is weighty yet nicely balanced by the supple, the low levels of oak permit the Shiraz fruit to shine through, dense, nicely layered and long, elegant and finely balanced.
