Vintage 2019 Update

Vintage 2019 was a superb growing season in Marlborough, characterised by a growing season of two halves….plenty of spring rain producing beautiful lush growth, then a typically hot dry summer, with just enough cooler nights to produce powerful, evenly ripened fruit flavours across the full range of grape varieties grown in Marlborough.


The dedicated, hands-on approach that the vineyard crew put into the Sugar Loaf vines, allowed us to harvest the fruit at optimum quality. The ‘go the extra mile’ really has paid off this year. Mother Nature also did her part in keeping the yields naturally low,  producing fruit with great purity & expression. We really are looking forward to the release of the 2019 wines…
