On the morning of Friday 21st of March (Autumn Solstice) with the moon and the sun in the sky we started handpicking lovely bunches of Pinot Noir at optimum ripeness from our Clod block. On Saturday we moved onto Bowl block and last Monday we started on the Abyss.
As the harvest continues the weather gods are smiling on us and our little bee helpers did an amazing job cleaning up the hail damage. We’ve been really lucky after what could have been a disastrous event – the hand harvested fruit coming into the winery looks clean and tastes delicious!
We’ve now finished harvesting all the Pinot Noir (Abyss, Bowl and Clod) and with early morning starts continuing, are now working
our way through hand harvesting the Sauvignon Blanc.
