Our winegrower update
Winter becoming Spring
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.
Friday 7th September
NOTE for our awesome mailorder customers. Our R & D Novum Rose 2018 has now sold out. For those that have ordered, your wine will begin leaving the winery on Monday 10th September. Thanks again.
