Our son Peter was attending to sales while
we were away. The day we left our 2012 Dolcetto was
named ‘Wine of the Week’ by Michael
Cooper in the Listener so a flurry of sales erupted and Peter
had a busy time. We fairly soon sold out of stocks
at the vineyard but we had more in storage and the good news
is that this is now once again available.
The first Montepulciano has now been in bottles for
around six months so we are releasing it - the price is $140.00
for a case of 12 and $80.00 for a case of 6.
The vineyard itself is look great with lots of promise for the new year and flowering
is not very far away.
The Pinot Gris and Chardonnay go off to the bottlers today
so it will be good to have some whites available again. They
should be ready for sale by the beginning of December.
