Pyramid Valley Vineyards Field Of Fire Chardonnay 2012

You’d get a rap on the knuckles from wine growers Mike and Claudia Weersing if you talk about Pyramid Valley as a vineyard estate, rather than a whole holistic farm entity. However, if you are talking vineyard on the farm, it’s pretty extraordinary – low to ground, with rows contoured to soil profile, planted to 12,000 vines per hectare. They’re on their hands and knees to work, mostly. The soils here have never seen herbicide, pesticide or inorganic fertiliser, and are farmed, since inception of Pyramid Valley, biodynamically.
