Harvest 2021 - small, but perfectly formed

Daniel Schwarzenbach, winemaker at Blackenbrook Vineyard

Our young 2021 wines are putting a big smile on Daniel's face.

While the quantity is tiny because of a cold snap during flowering in December, the intensity is out of this world.

It's hard to stop ourselves from going back to the tanks to sneak just another little taste...

The wines haven't been moved since fermentation. Once the yeast cells had converted all the available sugar into alcohol, they settled at the bottom of the tanks, giving our wines a gorgeous creaminess.

Harvest 2021 - small but so intense!

Blackenbrook Nelson Pinot Noir 2021, New Zealand

The grapes are in! 
It was a brief harvest with lots of blue sky, a happy picking crew and outstanding quality. 

Quantities were down this year because of a cold snap during flowering that affected most of the country, but the fermenting wines already show huge promise... watch this space!
