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+."


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."
