I hope everyone is enjoying a lovely Brown Magpie Pinot Noir near the fire. We certainly need something to cheer ourselves up.
The good news is that the dams are full and everything is preparing for a spring burst. Cross your fingers for a new baby brown magpie!! Craig has brought in the pre-pruner and prepared the vines for the finer pruning by Long's wonderful pruning team. He will be coming this week. We have also ordered the poles to repair our vineyard after the storms we had last year.
James Halliday has awarded us 4 and a 1/2 stars once again. This means we are an excellent winery knocking on the door of a 5 star rating. Our 2009 Shiraz has won a rating of 94 points or five cups. This is a limited release because of the drought, so if you want some please contact me directly. Our Chardonnay 2010 and Geelong Pinot Noir 2009 both received 90 points with an excellent value star. Chris Sargeant our wonderful energetic winemaker had his name misspelled. Completely my mistake, I am afraid.
We will be opening up in September 3 and 4, so please come and see us then.
