Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Selectively hand-picked from the Churton hillside Biodynamic vineyard that sits between the Waihopai and Omaka Valleys at 200m above sea level. Whole bunch pressed and transferred to demi-muids (600L), all French, none new. Pitched with a vineyard yeast starter, fermented and left on lees for 6 months.

Bright lemon hue to the wine. An excitingly expressive nose showing ripe tropical fruits with mineral/saline aromas and an underlying complexity. The palate is taught and powerful showing ripe fruits with lemongrass and citrus flavours, that flow into a fine phenolic and saline texture adding weight and complexity to the wine. To be enjoyed with fresh seafood or a summer salad.


5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, March 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"Made from biodynamically grapes from Churton’s vineyard that were fermented at the Pyramid Valley property in Waikari. Rich, textural sauvignon blanc with impressive weight and a mix of varietal fruit flavours with savoury, toast, ginger, mineral and struck flint characters. A complex wine that should develop well."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"Full of potential, the debut 2018 vintage was hand-harvested in the Churton Vineyard, an elevated site between the Waihopai and Omaka valleys, and fermented and lees-aged for six months in seasoned French oak demi-muids. Bright, light lemon/green, it is scented and mouthfilling, with penetrating, ripe, tropical fruit flavours and a long, tightly structured finish. Still a baby, it’s a distinctive, subtle, minerally wine, finely poised and likely to be at its best mid-2020+."


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"This splendid offering is complex and savoury on the nose, showing lemon/lime zest, apple, gun smoke and sweet basil aromas, followed by a brilliantly focused palate that is wonderfully fruited and superbly structured. A striking expression of the variety with layers of silky texture and pristine flavours together with flinty complexity. At its best: now to 2024."


93/100 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (2018 Vintage)
"Sourced from the biodynamically farmed Churton Vineyard, Pyramid Valley’s 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is a bit flinty and smoky, then eases into notes of nectarine and pink grapefruit. Fermented in old puncheons, it’s somewhat Graves-like in style, with medium to full body, an easygoing succulence on the mid-palate and a crisp lime-and-grapefruit finish. It should drink well for at least a few years."


90/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2018 Vintage)
"Very distinctive bouquet with a floral, fruit and savoury core. Wild on the palate with high acidity, flavours of lees spice, white flowers, citrus and white fleshed fruits then a mineral laden dry finish. Each new taste brings on the same messages though more texture and length as the wine builds its profile through the palate. Well made, very youthful. Drink now and through 2022."

Pyramid Valley's story began in the slopes and soil of North Canterbury at Waikari Estate. In 2000, Mike & Claudia Elze Weersing applied their impressive array of knowledge in viticulture, oenology, and biodynamics to this plot of land.

Steve Smith and Brian Sheth took the reins in 2017 to continue the legacy of spectacular winemaking. Some of the world's most profound Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays have been produced at Waikari, its combination of fertile soil and high-altitude slopes constituting a unique terroir over 80 hectares of perfectly placed plantings.

In 2018 the scope of Pyramid Valley's wine environs expanded with the purchase of Manata Estate in Central Otago. This established (over 150 years) vineyard has bolstered the magnificent Pinot Noir offering of Pyramid Valley, due to soils of rare distinction - the result of careful culivation resulting in soils with high levels of organic matter and natural humus.

    5 star review  I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
