Spring has Sprung - September Newsletter

Spring has sprung early with the last week of August giving us above average temperatures. Our white vines have had bud-burst and the bees are busy!

The grass is beautifully green and pruning is well underway, however, given the remaining fire damage to our Cabernet and Merlot, there is a huge amount of repatriation work still to do. I suspect we will be pruning and tidying these damaged vines up well into September.

COVID-19 is still having a significant effect here with visitor numbers significantly down, but thankfully our situation is much better than our friends over east - our thoughts go out to you all!

So on that note, we are excited to share a few updates from Drakesbrook Wines.

Wine of the Month:Wildbird Sangiovese

With spring in the air its the perfect time of year to start on those lighter bodied reds. The Italians know all about Food, Wine and a good time. This Mediterranean delight displays aromas of kirsch cheery, spice and an earthly savory like complexity. As one famous wine critic said, "just drink and enjoy"
