Our winegrower update
timing is everything
At present everything in the winery and vineyard seems to be about getting the timing right. In the vineyard we are rushing to get nets on as the grapes have ripened just enough to be tasty to every bird swooping past.
And in the winery we are on the countdown to bottling our 2018 Novum Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This week Will has spent a couple of days gently moving the wines out of barrel into tank, where they will settle for a couple of weeks before being sent out to the bottling facility in Riverlands.
Every task needs to happen at the right moment…and when it does that evening glass of wine seems well deserved as its not achieved at this time of year without speed and perhaps a little stress.
Our 4th vintage for Novum is now only about 4 weeks away. How time flies.
Please do not hesitate to get in contact if you have any comments or questions.
Cheers, Will and Rachel
