Pyramid Valley Orange 2022, North Canterbury

Orange from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 17-May-2023
Bright, lightly hazy, even, pale amber. The nose is fragrant with excellent intensity and penetrating aromas of stonefruit, citrus, zest, candied orange peels, honeysuckle and camomile. Medium-full bodied, aromas of apricot and peach melded with citrus preserves, unfolding zesty spice, pith, candied orange peels, honeysuckle and camomile. The wine is savoury and spicy, with buoyant flavour settling on a broad, calm mouthfeel with soft, round acidity that drives good length. This orange wine shows purity and a fragrant palate with zesty and floral details lighten up a still, broad mouthfeel and a long finish. Match with pork floss and smoked fish over the next 3-4 years. A Blend of Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer and Muscat, fermented on skins then aged in amphorae and oak. 13% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) May 2023 RRP $40
