A near-perfect harvest

We had a beautiful harvest despite Daniel and our two children contracting Covid on the first day of picking.  The weather was stunning and amidst the wide-spread labour shortage we were lucky to have a fantastic team of hand-pickers. 

Quality and quantity were really good.  The fermenting wines already show great potential and we can't wait to see how they develop.

Spring in sunny Nelson

Spring at Blackenbrook Vineyard, Nelson, New Zealand
Our vines are romping away - so lucky to have a fab vineyard team to keep things tidy. 

Shoot-thinning and wire-lifting are top priority at the moment to regulate crop load and protect the young shoots from the strong wind.

Vintage 2022 in the making...

Late summer at Blackenbrook Vineyard

Blackenbrook Pinot Noir Block in sunny Nelson, New Zealand

The nets are on, neatly clipped up to protect the precious grapes from the ever-so hungry birds.  

The canopy exudes vibrancy and health, working hard to produce amazing flavours and sugar for the upcoming vintage 2021.  

Let's keep the fingers crossed for tons of sunshine and dry weather.  Harvest is expected to start mid-March - watch this space!
