Update on the Release of the 2019 and 2021 Vintages

Posted by

Updated 1 November 2021 -

We have decided to delay release of our 2019 wines due to the loss of the entire 2020 vintage due to smoke. Our pre-release our 2019 Amungula Creek Pinot Noir to our Gold and Silver Status members, unfortunately for everyone else, sold the wine out. The good news is that 2019 Maipenrai Vineyard Pinot Noir will be released in May 2022, and while there is not heaps of wine, there should be enough for non Gold and Silver status members to get an opportunity to order some, although it will sell out quickly.

The 2021 vintage is very small - we made just over 2 barrels of wine (about 750 bottles worth), with the vine fruitfulness compromised by the smoke and drought of 2020. We expect to release these wines in September 2023, but we will need to restrict availability to 3 bottles per person, and I would expect it only to be available to people with Gold and Silver status on the mailing list. I am sorry - we are doing our best to combat the challenges of Mother Nature.

Budburst has come a bit early for the 2021/22 vintage, and I live in hope we will get a good high quality crop of grapes this vintage. The soils are saturated with water like never before, so they will get a good start!
