Award-winning Blackenbrook Nelson MontepulcianoOur Montepulciano came in yesterday, dark, sweet and full of flavour, a beautiful pick under the famous Nelson sun - the official end of harvest 2018!

It's been quite a ride with the weather throwing us some unexpected challenges. But thanks to our marvellous team of 20 hand-pickers who diligently sorted our fruit and discarded any blemished grapes, we now have delicious young wines with good flavour intensity in the winery.

And it's only a few months until you can taste the first of the 2018 wines - Sauvignon Blanc and Rose will be released on 1 August - watch this space...
