Reviews

Hero Sauvignon Blanc, Dish Magazine Dec 2021
Each vintage of this wine is an instant hit, packed with limes, melon, juicy citrus and lemongrass and sweet pea punch.  They're beautifully balanced, with great tension, power and texture.

This wine has some serious pedigree and it’s not only one of Nelson’s finest examples, it’s also one of the greatest $20 sauvignon blancs in the country. I say this because it’s so powerfully aromatic, with lemongrass, lime zest, sweet pea and tropical intensity on the nose and palate. The acid/alcohol/fruit sweetness balance is expertly handled, the textures are generous and juicy and the finish is long and persistent.

Highly aromatic, this Nelson Sauvignon Blanc is fresh and punchy, with an array of herbaceous and tropical fruit flavours, a touch of complexity and a crisp, dry, lasting finish. 

Bright and vibrant aromas of ripe gooseberry with background notes of green capsicum simply burst from the glass when you pour it, astounding freshness and vibrancy.
This is another beautiful wine from Blackenbrook Vineyard that exhibits the varietal purity we have
come to expect from the Schwarzenbach family.

Season Overview

Mother Nature threw some hefty challenges at us with unsettled weather and gale-force wind in spring followed by a hail storm on Boxing Day.

The humid and cold conditions in December made pollination difficult, resulting in small bunches with far less berries than usual.

Luckily we dodged the worst of the hail storm in December and only the Pinot Noir suffered damage.

In January the weather finally turned and the sun kept smiling down on us right into harvest. On 15 March we started picking beautifully healthy grapes of outstanding fruit concentration. Just smaller than wished for volumes…
