A first step to more of our delicious Rosé.  Last Saturday we picked the first of the Pinot Noir from Defiance vineyard destined for the 2016 Pinot Noir Rosé - we were sorry so many of you were disappointed to miss out on getting some of the 2015 vintage - we continue to be surprised and pleased at its popularity.  

Harvest on Defiance continued through Easter and we have now got the Chardonnay and remaining Pinot Noir safely into the winery for Pete to work his magic - the job for Fiona and her team is to deliver Pete the best fruit they can and he has been very pleased with everything so far!  The fruit from Defiance will result in a number of wines specifically from that Vineyard - so in the future you can expect to see a 'Defiance Pinot Noir' and a 'Defiance Chardonnary'.

Thank you Fiona for the photos which show respectively Chardonnay waiting to be picked, bunches in the hand (as Fiona said "small bunches loved by the winemaker - but a nightmare for viticulturists!) and in the bins!  The all important Pinot en route to the winery for the Pinot Noir Rosé.
