Delicious Montepulciano

Hi Ursula
Award-winning Nelson MontepulcianoHow are you doing? You must be thrilled with the success of your beautiful wines. 

I am excited to try the Montepulciano. I still have 2 of your 2010, which I have to say would be hard to beat.

Merry Christmas

A rising Star!

Nelson wine commentator Neil HodgsonBlackenbrook Vineyard is a rising star, making some of the most pure flavoured wine in the market place.  Their Sauvignon Blanc is a regular gold medal winner and has picked up a trophy, too, an exceptional effort when you consider the size of the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc production.

10 Year Anniversary 

Renowned New Zealand Wine Commentator Michael CooperBlackenbrook is one of the highest-achieving wineries on the Nelson scene, with a reputation for aromatic white wines - Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc - that are rich and full of personality. Daniel and Ursula are currently celebrating their ten-year anniversary. It’s a major milestone, and as their vineyard matures – to say nothing of the benefits of winemaker age – Blackenbrook’s wines will surely get better and better.

Hi Ursula.... I'm so excited.... finally had a chance to open your 2010 Pinot Noir and I LOVE IT! It's rich, jammy, luscious mouth feel, smooth as silk, finely integrated tannins... do you have any left... love to order another 1/2 doz.

PS. I've got to figure out how to get there for a visit.

Hello Ursula

Thank you for our wine which arrived in good order at Lake Hawea.

Your wine is indeed beautiful!  I first tried your Chardonnay at the Alivate Bar in Wanaka ..... The rest, as they say, is history.

Keep doing what you’re doing!

Blackenbrook Gewurztraminer rated well at Forum Vini in München

Hallo Frau Schwarzenbach!

Forum Vini MuenchenManchmal muss es auch schöne Nachrichten geben: Ihr Gewürztraminer wurde beim diesjährigen Forum Vini in München blind verkostet, er kam wahnsinnig gut an.

Ganz spannend finde ich die Tatsache, dass niemand (wirklich niemand!) der Verkoster auf das Herkunftsland „Neuseeland“ getippt hat! Der Wein hat viel Zuspruch gefunden – diese gute Nachricht wollte ich Ihnen nicht vorenthalten! Herzlichen Glückwunsch!
