Austin Black has finally made a run for it. Heading back to Central Otago for a great winemaking gig is a sad day for me personally. The great news is we welcome Thomas New who has moved up from Tasmania. Big changes but exciting changes all around. I’m obviously sad to see a mate go. But for Austin, the timing is right and the opportunity to take the reins at Terra …

posted on: 25 October 2017

2017 Vintage Report 2017 started slowly in September 2016 and took a more leisurely stroll through to harvest in March. Punctuated with regular rainfall and a moderate warmth, 2017 was a gorgeous season.
