Pyramid Valley

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

Tasting Notes

This wine reveals tropical aromas, reminiscent of summer fruits and touches of sherbet. The palate is vibrant and bursting with flavours of ripe melons and passion fruit. The powerful fruits combine with an attractive texture and balanced acidity.
