Description

Probably NZ's most internationally famous boutique vineyard, Pyramid Valley supplement their tiny Pinot Noir and Chardonnay production with small parcels from select vineyards around the country. The Howell family's vineyard is in the Bridge Pa Triangle in Hawke's Bay, managed organically and biodynamically under Pyramid Valley's strict instruction. Only 290 cases were ever made, and the wine is a rich, full, silky style of wine from a classic Hawke's Bay vintage.

Smells

Beautifully smoky and floral with cassis, plums, liquorice and nutty oak.

Tastes

Full-bodied and very intensely concentrated, the gorgeous texture that arises from bottling without fining or filtration is immediately obvious. Chewy, supple tannins and a lengthy, layered finish speak to its future in the cellar, but it's just so delicious now, it's hard to resist. Enjoy with a medium-rare piece of sirloin or even venison between now and 2027.
