Down and Dirty Tour Ticket

August

The cold temperatures and short days of a Central Otago winter continue to drag on. So does pruning. The pruning team will take advantage of a fresh fall of snow on the mountains for a welcome break to enjoy some skiing at the nearby ski fields.
 
Nigel recently spent a week in France conducting tastings and dinners at Michelin starred restaurants in Paris and Burgundy. You can read all about it in his blog "Seven go mad in Burgundy....". Blair was in the USA early in the winter and will spend most of August visiting customers and conducting tastings and dinners in Australia.
 
The 2014 Block 2 Chardonnay and Block 5 Pinot Noir will be carefully racked from barrel later in the month for bottling. The 2015 Rieslings will also be racked off lees and readied for bottling. The 2015 Pinot Noirs are resting in the cold cellars; a recent tasting showed this is another exciting vintage.
The end of the month will start bringing the first welcome signs of spring with the fruit trees coming out in blossom.

After a lot of thought we have decided not to use Facebook or Twitter. We like longer conversations and for them to be personal not public. If we did it, it would be because it is a fashion and not because our heart is in it and that doesn’t feel right. So please email, or much better come and see us.
