Blackenbrook Nelson Family Reserve Chardonnay 2014

Good afternoon Ursula and Daniel,

Just wanted to report that I opened up a bottle of your “2014 Family Reserve Chardonnay” to go with a chicken and lentil dish which Maria had prepared, and it is delicious.

Wonderful colour and great flavours.

I will enjoy more of it tonight! Not sure how long ago I bought it from you, but I only wish I had more.

Well done.  Many thanks,

Philip Archer

Blackenbrook Family Reserve Nelson Montepulciano 2019


Thank you for the speedy delivery, Ursula.

I could not resist opening your 2019 Montepulciano, after a neighbour of mine (Don) told me how good it was. I thought it would be too young, but it is thoroughly delicious.

I hope you, Daniel and the family have a relaxing Christmas and summer.

Regards - Dave

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,

Hi Ursula   

Hand-crafted Blackenbrook Nelson Chardonnay 2018Over lockdown I bought a box of 6 wines from you. They were delicious. I especially liked your Chardonnay, which was a surprise as i seldom drink this grape variety.

Is it possible to come to your cellar door and buy some more Chardonnay 2018?

I belong to an amateur wine tasting group and the wine I am tasked to bring next Thursday is "my favourite Chardonnay". 

Kind regards,  
Judy Fisher

Fabulous new vintage Sauvignon Blanc!

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
