Novum presents a new way of bringing lovers of fine wine and some of Marlborough’s best vineyards together.

Join us on the journey.



Our winegrower update

timing is everything 

At present everything in the winery and vineyard seems to be about getting the timing right.  In the vineyard we are rushing to get nets on as the grapes have ripened just enough to be tasty to every bird swooping past.

And in the winery we are on the countdown to bottling our 2018 Novum Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This week Will has spent a couple of days gently moving the wines out of barrel into tank, where they will settle for a couple of weeks before being sent out to the bottling facility in Riverlands.  

Every task needs to happen at the right moment…and when it does that evening glass of wine seems well deserved as its not achieved at this time of year without speed and perhaps a little stress.

Our 4th vintage for Novum is now only about 4 weeks away. How time flies.

Please do not hesitate to get in contact if you have any comments or questions.

Cheers, 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+.
