Waipara Valley Vineyard Project

Waipara Valley Vineyard Project

Our company has a strong commitment to sustainable wine production and we have been growing and producing wine in accordance with the Sustainable New Zealand Wine Growing (SWINZ).

Over the next few months we will be posting regular blogs on what this means and our company’s sustainable practices.

Waipara Valley Update - August 2012

Waipara Valley Update - August 2012

 

In spite of the coolest summer we have experienced in nearly 20 years in New Zealand, we have harvested some beautiful fruit due to the fantastic autumn. Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris fruit looked and tasted particularly splendid.

It was a very condensed harvest for us not starting until after Easter and most of the picking concentrated over the last two weeks of April, first week of May. The last of the Riesling was not done until the 27 of May by which time we had already started the pruning.

Central Otago Update - Golden Terraces Vineyard, August 2012

Golden Terraces Vineyard, August 2012

Pruning began 1st week of June. We adopted a slight change to past seasons with “crew” numbers which resulted in a smaller precise crew being employed – 7 people in total. This seemed a huge task as we have 91ha to prune but the rationale behind it was to allow the crew to have continuous work through to end of September (or thereabouts), along with the major fact that the supervision of this small crew would result in the job being conducted nearly to 100% of expectation.

Marlborough Update - The Woolshed Vineyard, August 2012

Flooding at the Woolshed Vineyard - August 2012

The later than normal harvest was followed by a big frost on the 25th April and we were able to start pruning straight after harvest. This allowed us to get all the major cuts completed and utilize theKlima Stripper to its maximum and get the whole Woolshed block stripped before sending machine to Waipara to strip out down there.

Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir 2013

New Zealand’s premiere wine event is held only once every three years and the next one is happening from 28 to 31 January 2013 in Wellington, New Zealand. If you love Pinot Noir you cannot afford to miss it.
 
Not surprisingly Waipara Hills will be there, and we’d love you to join us.
 
It’s not just about us though, there will be over 100 other New Zealand wineries from five different regions showing their Pinots with some very special guest stars thrown in for good measure:

25 gold medals over ten vintages, from wine shows accross the globe, are a testament to the quality of Sauvignon Blanc made by New Zealand's Waipara Hills. The latest release, the 2011 vintage, has a lot to live up to with such a pedigree.

The 2011 Waipara Hills Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of two of the key sub regions of Marlborough, including the vineyards grown on terraces of the Awatere and Wairau Valleys. These unique regions contribute key attributes to the final blend of 2011 vintage.
