REVIEWS ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

Pyramid Valley Angel Flower Pinot Noir 2010
Good deep ruby.

 
Flowers, red fruits, and bags of spice on the forward bouquet.
 
Lush but crisp, with very fresh fruit, and all that spice. Very long and elegant palate.
 

"Aromas of roses and sweet plums with strawberry. Full body, with super fine tannins and beautiful fruit. Silky and fine with such beauty. This is insane with a rust and iron character. Fascinating. Drink or hold."

95 points James Suckling

 

"A tank sample due to be bottled within two weeks of my tasting, the 2010 Angel Flower Pinot Noir offers alluring ripe cherry and mulberry aromas over baking spices, lilacs and a touch of honeysuckle. Medium bodied with a medium level of fine-grained tannins, it has medium-high acid and long finish. Mike and Claudia Weersing continue to work nature’s magic on their wines. The results are truly unique wines that can only come from these creative hands working out of this pretty patch just inland from the Waipara. Even more exciting is that the quality straight across the estate and growers labels just gets better and more consistent each year from this relatively new operation."

91-93 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate


1.1 tonnes per acre from this north-facing parcel; ten year old vines. Denser, shallower soils, still clay-limestone: 20% clay, 3-7% active lime. Biodynamic from before planting.
 
Late April pick, entirely hand destemmed, 25% foot crushed. Ambient soak of 5-7 days, warm vineyard yeast fermentation (33C), 27-28 day cuvaison. Natural, spring malolactic. Ten months on original lees, in French barriques, 15% new, then held a further six months in tank. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, in September 2011. Alcohol 13.7%. Production: 180 cases.
