 Wine Tasting at the award-winning Blackenbrook Vineyard, Nelson, New Zealand

Hi Ursula

I recently took a bottle of your 2017 Chardonnay to my family in Wanaka.  They liked it so much, I have ordered some more for them and myself.

We are so lucky to have such talented winemakers in our region.

Kind Regards

Hi lovely people, 

I'm in Invercargill and caring for my elderly mother after leaving the Motueka i-SITE...... and I'm homesick for Tasman!

What better way to ease the pain than some beautiful Blackenbrook Gris!

Stay lucky, keep warm,

Superb Family Reserve Pinot Noir 2010 - a Treasure from the Library Stock


Dear Ursula  

Award-winning Blackenbrook Family Reserve Nelson Pinot Noir 2010Just before New Year, I had a bottle of your Family Reserve Pinot Noir 2010 and it really was superb - beautifully rich ripe concentrated dark fruit, intense, tarry and with a lovely liquorice nuance. Just a pity I have no more!

Best Wishes

Mouth-watering Family Reserve Chardonnay 2014

Delicious Blackenbrook Family Reserve Chardonnay 2014Very noble cool-climate Chardonnay with wonderful flavours of sizzled butter, nuts, citrus, pineapple and a little bit anise.

This is an incredibly delicious and remarkable new world wine from Blackenbrook Vineyard.
