Vintage 2013 underway

9 April 2013

Just received the first Pinot grapes from the 2013 harvest. The start of vintage always gives me a buzz and its great to get the first fermenter full.  Quality wise 2013 looks to be a stunner!, quite low acids but full flavoured, nice chewy skins and fine, ripe tannins.  We have a cool vintage crew this year – our new Cellar master is Tim Richards, we have Logan Richardson from Auckland, Sofie Ward from CHCH , Ryan Sherman from Brooklyn, NY and Nicky  Dow from Durban, South Africa.  My twin boys - Nico and Joe, just finished High School, are also helping before they depart for Europe in May
