“This tiny winery, tucked away in a sleepy corner of North Canterbury, has always had a range of wines from purchased fruit, in addition to the several Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs produced from the estate vineyard. Established by Mike and Claudia Weersing, it's now owned by the Smith and Sheth partnership,
with Huw Kinch (formerly Larry McKenna's assistant winemaker at Escarpment) installed as the onsite general manager/winemaker. Of the current releases, the single-plot Chardonnays from 2019 are the standouts.” – Joe Czerwinski
More fruit-driven and strident in tone than the 2019, Pyramid Valley's 2020 North Canterbury Sauvignon + is louder in its bold grapefruit and white currant fruit, but it
lacks some of the subtleties of the previous vintage.
Bright, citrusy and refreshing, with plenty of length and vibrancy on the finish, drink this medium-bodied wine over the next year or two Rated : 90 Points Joe Czerwinski - Robert Parker Wine Advocate
