What a vintage that was!

We have been reading in the papers about how many larger wineries have been lauding the 2019 season, and we don't think they are wrong. Our own winemaker, Lauren Swift was recently interviewed by Hawkes Bay Today about the vintage, she said: "We've been picking the fruit today and it's just looking stunning. I think everyone has got some pretty beautiful Merlot as well. The Cabernet Sauvignon is a bit of a wait and see - but our main focus at Ashridge is Syrah."

The one minute video on NZ Herald even got our assistant winemaker. Lochy, in on the picture ankle deep in Syrah grapes. See it here.
