Our winegrower update

Frosty nights Sept 2019

You surely know its spring when you are up to your second cup of coffee and its only 7am!

We have hit the frost season and the wind machines have been on in the Brancott Valley for the last two nights in a row, making any possibility of a decent sleep like a mirage in the desert! For those that haven’t experienced it before its like having a hurricane going on outside your bedroom window. Sometimes for only a couple of hours starting around 5am and other times it can start at midnight and last until 7am.

The wine machines on a very cold night pull the warmer air sitting in an inversion layer 10-50m above the vineyard back down to the ground, protecting our new spring growth from the 0◦c temperatures that are sweeping through.

In some years we are lucky and have no frost events at all throughout Spring and other years there can be many…..

already I am hoping for less rather than more!

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 CHARDONNAY 2017
17/20

Very smart nose fully vindicates my enthusiasm for NZ Chardonnay.
If only all white burgundy smelt this clean and compelling. Crystalline fruit. Good, medium weight of pure fruit that’s already intense but promises much more in the future. Long and complex. No playing around with reduction.
A beautiful wine.
