Pyramid Valley-Pinot Noir-"Earth Smoke" Canterbury, New Zealand-2009

Pyramid Valley
Pinot Noir
"Earth Smoke" Canterbury, New Zealand


Pyramid Valley: North Canterbury, New Zealand (South Island). Biodynamic vineyard, classic  “non intervention” winemaking. “Earth Smoke” block (named for the predominant weed growing here) makes a wild, gamey Pinot. Cloudy, brickish color. Nose is musk, smoked mushrooms, game, soy sauce, red cherries and plums. Good acidity. “Acquired taste” wine.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate, October 2011: "Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2009 Earth Smoke Pinot Noir has red plum and ripe raspberry notes with an undercurrent of meat, beetroot, damp loam and dried Provence herbs, and a whiff of red flowers. Medium bodied with good acidity, velvety tannins and plenty of mouth-filling fruit, it lingers long into the finish. Drink it now to 2015+."
