In the Vineyard
Our 2017 Harvest was exciting, with good yields and excellent quality fruit - despite the cool and wet weather we have experienced. Autumn is certainly with us and ripening of the late varieties was slow, but finished in the third week of April.
We are so happy with the quality of the fruit this year. It was disease free, in beautiful condition and had amazing flavours. We had it netted and protected from the marauding birds - it was all ours!
This was the first main harvest for our Arneis and the Marsanne/Rousanne blend and we are so looking forward to seeing these fermented and developing. Better still - in the bottle!
2015 Christabel Sparkling Pinot Noir Chardonnay.
We are excited to relaease our 2015 Christabel. It's clean, crisp and has beautiful fruit. Come out to cellar door and try it.
2016 Box Tree White
A rare blend of Arneis, Marsanne, Rousanne and Chardonnay, this wine has an abundance of lovely fruit characters and just a little residual sweetness. Ideal for hot curries or other spicy dishes.
