Description
 
ABOUT: Pyramid Valley is a name to be filed away in your New Zealand biodynamic pioneer database along with Seresin, Milton, and Felton Road. Pyramid Valley began life in a well chosen spot in North Canterbury on the east coast of New Zealand’s south island in 2000. From the beginning their vineyards have been farmed with biodynamic practices and today they are Demeter certified. Mike and Claudia Weersing run the show and are fully dedicated to achieving the lowest artificial input levels in their wines as possible. Mike actually worked for Deiss and Kreydenweiss in Alsace, some direct biodynamic inspiration. Their meticulous wine making practices shine through in their incredible collection of focused wines. They make tiny quantities of wines that age well so we get extra excited when we have some in stock. Hope you do too.

TASTE: We love Pinot Blanc and this rich style of wine, an Alsatian interpretation of Pinot Blanc, no doubt picked up while winemaker Mike Weersing was in Alsace working there with some of the greats. Aromas and flavors of apples, peaches, orange marmalade, with a rich, medium+ body and a well-balanced medium shot of acid. Lifted, sweet floral aromas, focused fruit flavors along with honey and spice. A long finish and a seemingly endless ability to develop. There is hardly any of this wine available in our market so we think this is something to jump on when seen.


PAIR: Curry, quiche, mushrooms, buttery soft cheeses, and garlic.
