Pyramid Valley North Canterbury Orange 2020

$48.00

Complex and fine and Wow! Orange, citrus, spice, lavender and apple. Juicy, and subtly textured. There’s some white pepper, cherry, orange pith and Cointreau. Terrific finesse, and a style of wine we wouldn’t usually go for, but this is amazing. Waters Wine Co. 

87% Pinot Gris, 7% Muscat, 4% Riesling and 2% Gewürztraminer. Sourced from two vineyards in North Canterbury, the grapes for this “paean to the previous owners of Pyramid Valley” (Gary Walsh) were drawn from the Porters vineyard in Waipara (Pinot Gris) and the Three Sisters vineyard (Riesling), while the Muscat and Gewürz came off Domett clay soils.

The entirety of the fruit was whole-bunch fermented in 1,000-litre open-tops for up to 21 days, and then pressed and aged in old barrels and clay amphora for six months, prior to being bottled (unfined and unfiltered). If this is the future of PV Orange, count us in. Textural but light-footed, this is so moreish with engaging, somewhat exotic fruit balancing out the discrete nutty oxidative notes. Mouth-watering, powdery grip keeps everything tangy and fresh. Importer’s notes.
