Join us on the journey.



Our winegrower update

as Autumn becomes Winter 

Every year at this time, we revel in the silence that late autumn and winter brings to the vineyards.

It is the only time of year when the vineyards are truly quiet. You really notice this when you live in one. No tractors, no cars, no people. It is broken for a short period when the pruning teams arrive, but otherwise it’s just quiet. Winter dormancy gives all of us a break.

Inside it’s a little hectic, there is a lot of waxing going on as we ready our Novum chardonnay bottles for release.  This is all done by hand and it is a big job.  No bottle will look the same, and we like that.  Some fab 5 star reviews are already coming in. We are pretty excited and are very happy with this wine. 

Update Tuesday 26th June

Our Novum Chardonnay available direct from the winery has now sold out as of 3pm today.  If  you missed out on getting some please email us ( and I will add you to our pre release list for next year.

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 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+.
