Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Complex aromatics: boxwood and petrichor minerality open without hesitation to ripe white peach, bright pink grapefruit, lime pith, and subtle hints of dried herbs and toasted brioche.

A supple and generous roundness which dances across the palate. This 2016 Field of Fire is a standout example of power and intensity complimented by incredible poise and a lively, playful length."


5 Stars & 96/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2019 (2016 Vintage)
"Magnificently composed and expressed, this splendid chardonnay shows ripe peach, grilled pineapple, nougat, vanilla and orange peel characters on the nose, leading to a sumptuous palate that displays awesome depth and richness. It is lavish and mouthfilling while remaining firmly structured and balanced, leading to a stunning flowing finish. At its best: now to 2026."


5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2016 Vintage)
"Tangy, chardonnay that is crisper, brighter and has more energy than its broader, richer sister label Lion’s Tooth. Grapefruit, stone fruit, peach and nectarine flavours with toasty oak and a hint of struck flint and mineral character."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"Full of personality, the 2016 vintage was estate-grown on an elevated, south-east-facing slope at Waikari, in North Canterbury. Fermented with indigenous yeasts in an even split of clay giare and aged French demi-muids, it was lees-aged for 10 months, then bottled unfined and unfiltered. Bright, light lemon/green, it’s a Chablis-like wine, full-bodied, with penetrating, crisp, citrusy flavours, showing impressive vigour and intensity, firm acid spine and a lasting finish. Best drinking 2020+."


95/100 James Suckling (2016 Vintage)
"This is the more complex of the two 2016 chardonnays from Pyramid Valley. There’s a gently flinty, biscuity edge to the yellow-peach aromas. The palate is layered and concentrated with pristine yellow-peach flavors, interlaced with fine, stony mineral notes. Brilliant chardonnay. Drink now. Screw cap."


96/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2016 Vintage)
"This is a delicious wine. From the initial bouquet of flowers and gun-flint to citrus and heirloom tree-fruit to an alluring complexity on the nose and palate together have a wonderful harmony with each other. A dry wine with a layer of oak spice and lees derived wild spice to tension and poise from the acidity and very fine silky tannins – this is a wine take your time over – slow down, pause, enjoy the weight and subtle power, flavours and finish. Not all Chardonnay are for everyone, this example will most certainly open your eyes and palate to a special place and time. Drink now and through 2024."

Pyramid Valley's story began in the slopes and soil of North Canterbury at Waikari Estate. In 2000, Mike & Claudia Elze Weersing applied their impressive array of knowledge in viticulture, oenology, and biodynamics to this plot of land.

Steve Smith and Brian Sheth took the reins in 2017 to continue the legacy of spectacular winemaking. Some of the world's most profound Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays have been produced at Waikari, its combination of fertile soil and high-altitude slopes constituting a unique terroir over 80 hectares of perfectly placed plantings.

In 2018 the scope of Pyramid Valley's wine environs expanded with the purchase of Manata Estate in Central Otago. This established (over 150 years) vineyard has bolstered the magnificent Pinot Noir offering of Pyramid Valley, due to soils of rare distinction - the result of careful culivation resulting in soils with high levels of organic matter and natural humus.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
