We are launching the Flaxmore label with a single vineyard series of wines: A 2018 Pinot Gris and Rosé have just been released and the Pinot Noir is currently in barrel for release in April 2019. We are developing several parcels of chardonnay for expected release in 2020.
The 2018 vintage was another challenging year when a summer of climatic perfection started to unravel by early February. This was not entirely dissimilar to recent vintages where lessons had been learnt: we benefited from aggressive leaf plucking and bunch thinning for optimal airflow and ensuring that a lower yielding crop was able to achieve the ripeness and phenolic structure we desired.
From the vine to the bottle our wines are fully accredited by Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand [SWNZ Logo]
