Pyramid Hill Wines

New South Wales | Hunter Valley

Our Review

Pyramid Hill is a partnership between the Adler and Hilder families. Richard Hilder is a veteran viticulturist who oversaw the establishment of many of the Rosemount vineyards. Nicholas Adler and Caroline Sherwood made their mark in the international film industry before moving to Pyramid Hill in 1997. The vineyard (chardonnay, semillon, shiraz, verdelho and merlot) has a computer-controlled irrigation system connected to a network of radio-linked weather and soil moisture sensors that constantly relay data detailing the amount of available moisture at different soil depths to a central computer, thus avoiding excess irrigation and preventing stress. Most of the grapes are sold, but part has been vinified, with cautious expansion planned. Exports to the UK, Canada, Japan and Singapore. -JAMES HALLIDAY
