Fields of Fire Chardonnay Pyramid Valley, biodynamic dry white wine, peach, fresh patisserie, floral, lush, clean. When you first smell this wine, you are invited in by the scent of a French bakery - that wonderful buttery, yeasty scent - backed up by baked peach and floral aromas. As you taste it, it's as lush as you'd expect, but a backbone of stony minerality keeps it well in check. A real must for lovers of top Chardonnay from a biodynamic vineyard which is a real labour of love, with some of the highest plant densities in New Zealand.

Based near Waikari in North Canterbury, Claudia and Tim Weersing moved to New Zealand in 1996 and bought a plot of land in 2000 after an extensive search for the right terroir. They have worked biodynamically from the word go, with the highest plant density in New Zealand and extremely low yields. “Wine to us is a genie, genius loci; our task is to coax it from its stone bottle. Wine’s magical capacity for evoking site, we consider an obligation, as much as a gift. Every gesture we make, in the vineyard and winery, is a summons to the spirit of place. Biodynamics, hand-based viticulture, natural winemaking – these are all means we’ve adopted better to record and to
transmit, with the greatest possible fidelity, this spirit’s song.”
