Our winegrower update
Is summer here yet?
The longer days of summer have finally arrived, after what seems like a deluge of Spring/Summer rain! It’s not often that we can look up at the Wither Hills behind us in December and still see a green flush of grass!!
It’s a very pretty time of year though, the vineyards are looking lush with lots of vibrant green growth and wild flowers are everywhere thanks to the warm rain that we have had. Our new little Syrah vines have streaked ahead with many already at fruiting wire height. The best season for new plants ever! And as you can imagine with rain comes continuous grass growth, so lots of time on the tractor mowing grass.
As we look back at the year that was, and the year that is coming we feel really excited at the leaps and bounds that Novum has made. We hope you have a moment to sit and relax over the Christmas break and drink a nice glass of wine to celebrate the year that was for you too. Whether it be a glass of Chardonnay or Seedlip we hope it is a good one!
Wishing you all a lovely and relaxing Christmas and holiday season ahead.
Best to you all, Will and Rachel
