Join us on the journey.



Our winegrower update

Winter becoming Spring 

Black Magic

As many of you know we have been making Syrah under several different guises for years now and have become quietly dedicated to the variety.  We love it. 

But it is hard to find in Marlborough, and few grow it well. To this end we are excited to launch our own Syrah Project!!

We are in the process of planting the western boundary of our home block with a form of Syrah vine that we know will produce consistently dark ripe fruit; allowing us to make wines that are not only good to drink now but will cellar well too.  We have spent the week out in the vineyard preparing the soil so that the new vines can be planted in a few weeks’ time. To say that we are super excited about this development is an understatement!  Keep you posted.

Novum Pinot Noir 2016
95 Points

Beautifully expressive and refined with sleek black cherry and blackberry fruit. It’s rich and seductive but also has freshness and detail. Great structure and harmony too. There’s some black fruit richness but also lovely red fruit crunch. Such a textural wine with real interest and detail, with opulence but also some seriousness.

Novum deserves to be on every wine lovers radar

Novum Pinot Noir 2016
5 Stars

The great value 2016 vintage (5*) was launched in late 2017 under the brand Novum (Latin for ‘new’). Grown exclusively at “hillside organic” sites – including Churton, Yarram and Ashmore/Settlement – it is a deep ruby, highly fragrant red, mouth-filling, savoury and silky-textured, with generous, ripe cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, showing excellent complexity and harmony. Already delicious, it should be at its best 2019+.
