I really like that Pyramid Valley’s home vineyard wines, and the naming of the blocks themselves, are related to weeds. The weeds found in the vineyard all give some help to the site, from offering biodiversity to animal life, to being used for biodynamic preparations, through to physically helping crack clay soils in the case of Twitch Grass (the motif on Field Of Fire labels). Earth Smoke describes the appearance of fumitory, described as follows:
a gentle and tender weed, with a beautiful magenta flower. Its wispy gray-green foliage, rising from newly cultivated ground, does indeed resemble smoke, especially in the half-light of dawn.
It echoes a sentiment of just how in tune Mike and Claudia Weersing are with their farm.
It’s a superb pinot noir. Delicate, lacy, fresh-feeling, with a gentle concentration of sour cherry, herb, earth and truffley flavours. It smells beautiful, like a savoury elixir composed from berries, flowers, botanicals and roots. An elemental feel to the wine, red berries jostle gently with sprigs of green herbs in the silky, spacious spread of flavour, and the wine finishes with lifting, pleasingly sour and frisky acidity. It’s one for drinking a bit quicker, it’s a touch more fleeting and showing herbal influence than the magnificent Angel Flower 2013 release, but still is a wonderful wine in its own right. 94pts MIKE BENNIE, www.winefront.com.au
