Pyramid Valley North Canterbury Orange Wine

This wine is an organically grown, minimal intervention (low sulfite), skin contact or “orange” wine, mostly based on Pinot Gris, with smaller amounts of Gewürztraminer and Muscat. 

Wine Region: North Canterbury,  New Zealand

Grape Variety: Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Muscat

Tasting Notes: Luminous peach/ copper hue, with a reassuring, organic, light haze. Lifted floral aromas leap out of the glass along with orange rind and an earthy complexity. Lovely fine phenolics fill the mouth giving great weight and a moreish texture to the wine. Orange rind, Campari/ Negroni like flavours follow.

Food Pairing: A great wine to accompany a variety of tapas-style foods.
