Waipara Valley Vineyard Update 2013

Four legged leaf pluckers hard at work

Summer of 2012/13 will be remembered by us as a great summer in the vineyard and this will be reflected in the bottle; vintage 2013!

This warm and settled summer was the base for a favorable ripening season. Fruit was harvested with good flavour, generous sweetness and solid acidity across all varietals.

Waipara Valley Winemaker Update 2013

The Waipara Hills handpicking team

Summer 2013 will be one which people will talk about in Canterbury for quite some time.

Central Otago Harvest 2013

Central Otago

The 2013 season was one of the latest on record. Harvest started in earnest on April 5th. Weather conditions for harvest were near perfect, with cool calm days.  The prediction of rain eventuated with a shower of rain falling the day after final pick.

Marlborough Harvest 2013

Marlborough Harvest 2013

It was a great season in Marlborough with below average rainfall and higher than average growing degree days (the average daily temperature minus 10 added together) and average wind run. Crops were mostly in the optimum cropping range to suit the vineyard. This meant that quality was maximised with good healthy canopies through to harvest with great flavour development and ripening. 

Capturing the Soul of the South - Equinox Release

How does one capture the Soul of the South? By producing a special limited edition range of premium wines that uniquely represent the North Canterbury wine region Waipara Valley.
