Description

Pyramid Valley Pinot Noir

Pyramid Valley Pinot Noir has a lifted floral nose with raspberry and cherry aromas, with an abundance of savoury/earthy complexity. The palate is vibrant with tension and length, showing a nice mixture of bright fruit/herbal elements and a savoury structure that North Canterbury is renowned for.

Producer

The story begins in a magical place where magnificent native birds once roamed and soared, where the earth produces in abundance and the stars align for greatness.

This unique site of altitude, limestone, slope, rock and rich soil is our Waikari Estate and home to some of the most profound Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines in the world. In 2018 our story breathed a new chapter when we purchased a new vineyard, the Manata Estate in Lowburn, Central Otago.

The vineyard has produced exceptional Pinot Noir since 2002 and is home to our Central Otago Pinot Noir. Across both sites biodynamic viticulture and a natural approach to winemaking create handcrafted wine that breathes of its place and tastes like nowhere else on earth.

Mike and Claudia Elze Weersing spent 15 years searching the world to find the perfect place to grow grapes. In 2000, they purchased the plot of land near Waikari, that we now call home.

German-born and America-raised Claudia, was a committed biodynamicist and the guiding spirit on the land in the early years of Pyramid Valley. Mike studied oenology and viticulture in Burgundy and worked in vineyards and cellars across Europe, honing his precise vision and practice for spectacular winemaking.

Together, Mike and Claudia created remarkable wines for close to 20 years that have been recognised the world over.

Ethos

“We tend our estates according to the holistic principles of biodynamics, working with the energy of the cosmos and feeding the soils and ecosystem of the site to let nature work her wonders.

The beauty of biodynamics for us, is being in tune with each of our vineyards and their unique needs based on individual soil type, site aspect, ecosystem and local climate.

In the cellar, our winemaking follows natural principles with the use of indigenous yeasts, natural fining and minimal, if any, filtration. Our ultimate goal is to guide our wines from the earth to the bottle, producing wines that truly breathe of their place.” – Pyramid Valley Vineyards

The Black Shiraz is an extreme example of this style, deep colour, huge palate and high alcohol. This wine upholds the tradition with strong blackberry and plum aromas over toast, vanilla and spice. The palate is full flavoured and intense with rich blackberry, plum, blueberry and spicy characters. The tannins are very ripe and dense giving great structure and length to the palate.
