Our winegrower update

Is summer here yet? 

The longer days of summer have finally arrived, after what seems like a deluge of Spring/Summer rain! It’s not often that we can look up at the Wither Hills behind us in December and still see a green flush of grass!!

It’s a very pretty time of year though, the vineyards are looking lush with lots of vibrant green growth and wild flowers are everywhere thanks to the warm rain that we have had. Our new little Syrah vines have streaked ahead with many already at fruiting wire height. The best season for new plants ever! And as you can imagine with rain comes continuous grass growth, so lots of time on the tractor mowing grass.

As we look back at the year that was, and the year that is coming we feel really excited at the leaps and bounds that Novum has made. We hope you have a moment to sit and relax over the Christmas break and drink a nice glass of wine to celebrate the year that was for you too. Whether it be a glass of Chardonnay or Seedlip we hope it is a good one!

Wishing you all a lovely and relaxing Christmas and holiday season ahead.

Best to you all, Will and Rachel

Novum Pinot Noir 2016
95 Points

Beautifully expressive and refined with sleek black cherry and blackberry fruit. It’s rich and seductive but also has freshness and detail. Great structure and harmony too. There’s some black fruit richness but also lovely red fruit crunch. Such a textural wine with real interest and detail, with opulence but also some seriousness.

Novum Pinot Noir 2016
5 Stars

The great value 2016 vintage (5*) was launched in late 2017 under the brand Novum (Latin for ‘new’). Grown exclusively at “hillside organic” sites – including Churton, Yarram and Ashmore/Settlement – it is a deep ruby, highly fragrant red, mouth-filling, savoury and silky-textured, with generous, ripe cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, showing excellent complexity and harmony. Already delicious, it should be at its best 2019+.
