Pyramid Valley is one of New Zealand's great wine estates located in North Canterbury on the South Island of New Zealand close to Christchurch city. The region has a cool, dry climate with lots of sun and a long growing season. The Southern Alps to the west ensure low rainfall and long, dry autumns along with a high diurnal range help to create concentrated and expressive wines
Fragrant blackberry and raspberry with hints of liquorice, black pepper and clove. Sweet red plum, cherry and spice. Richly textured with lovely minerality. Complex with a long and silky sweet berry finish.
Each vineyard batch was kept separate, gently pressed and cold settled. The juice was racked and inoculated with selected yeasts. A cool, closely-monitored fermentation followed, and once the wine reached perfect balance it was chilled and racked off its yeast lees. The wine was then allowed to relax in tank before blending, fining and filtering.
