Awards, Reviews and other Notes

92 pts Wine Advocate March 2019
The new owners have expanded Pyramid Valley's production to include an offering from their vineyard in Central Otago. Formerly known as Lowburn Ferry, it's been renamed Manata. The 2017 Pinot Noir delivers bold black cherry and subtle earthy notes, a medium to full-bodied palate and hints of mocha and plum. With its suave, silky texture, it's drinkable now, but it shows the concentration and length to drink well through 2026.
93 pts Wine Enthusiast November 2019
The first release of Central Otago Pinot from this winery is expressive and approachable, a balanced combo of ripe wild strawberries, tar, mushrooms, dried violets and ground savory spices. Fine, sandy tannins, crunchy acidity and a silky texture flow towards a long savory and floral finish.
93 pts Wine Spectator 11/30/19
Powerful yet restrained, featuring a core of black cherry, pomegranate and wild strawberry flavors, fleshy and appealing, with accents of sarsaparilla, black pepper and fresh loamy earth. Shows plenty of momentum on the finish. Drink now through 2029. 500 cases made, 200 cases imported.

Winemaker Notes

Deep dark purple hue. Exotic floral, five spice and aniseed aromas leap out of the glass along with red cherries, plum’s and an underlying complexity that speaks of Central Otago. A wine full of flavor with a soft silky palate, which has crunchy red fruits and savoury textural flavours that combine to give the wine great weight and complexity.
