In addition to making their own highly-regarded estate wines, Pyramid Valley have also made a series of negociant bottlings from interesting vineyard sites across New Zealand, and this Pinot Blanc is one of their earlier releases from 2007. Now, at age 10, it is still remarkably youthful and pure, and full of interest.
Pyramid Valley Vineyards Growers Collection Kerner Estate Vineyard Pinot Blanc 2007 Marlborough, New Zealand
At age 10, this is a very interesting wine. Textural and complex yet really fresh still, with lovely pear and white peach, as well as a hint of honeydew melon. There are subtle notes of bread and wax, too. Complex and linear with depth yet precision, this is a really interesting wine that’s ageing slowly but well. 92/100
