About

93

“Grown mostly on shale soils, Chardonnay is the dominant variety at Lismore. Lightly oaked and featuring 50% malolactic fermentation for the first time, this is a significant step up on the 2011, with nutmeg spice, savory complexity and a shimmering minerally core. Drink: 2015-20”

91 Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media

"Very pale yellow. Smoky, slightly herbaceous aromas of grapefruit peel, clove and honey. Rich, spicy and broad on the palate, conveying noteworthy depth and energy to the flavors of peach, brown spices and salty minerals. Finishes with impressive breadth and dusty persistence. A dense but brisk cool-climate style of Chardonnay with a light touch. Greyton is located in the Southern Cape region, northeast of Hermanus and inland."
