"We kicked off with Chardonnay on the 15th of Feb, almost 3 weeks later than our first pick in 2016. The weather has been fantastic with steady ripening and great flavour development. Our second week of vintage brought in a fresh and floral batch of Muscat for bubbles...

"Valentine's Day harvesting of the Chardonnay by 7th generation Joel Chambers. A beautiful day to start vintage!"

"What an appropriate wine to be making on Valentine's Day! #RoséWine."

"Picked All Saints Chardonnay Tuesday 14th – 7.5 tonne."

"20 tonnes so far of sparkling Chardonnay base wine destined for our footsteps NV Chardonnay Pinot Noir. The flavours are looking good, with a little more acidity than usual so far, which is nice."

"Vintage 2017 kicked off today with an early harvest of Muscat for our Sparkling Lizzie. The grapes have great flavour, and if the rest of vintage 2017 follows suit, it should be an excellent year!"
