October is going to be busy
Dear friends and wine enthusiasts
The days are getting visibly longer and the buds on the vines are swelling ready to burst out with their young green and pink foliage. So it’s imperative to finish the pruning this week and we should, all going well.
Looks like October will be a very busy time at Wedgetail with the Nillumbik shire Open Farm Day, and vineyard tours here on Sunday 4th of October (the day after Grand Final) and the famous Open Cellars on the Saturday & Sunday 17th & 18thof October.

Our Latest News Ben Thomas Reviews the Single Vineyard Shiraz 2011 The Weekly Review 4 ½ / 5 Edgy, cool-climate Shiraz may not be to everyone’s taste, but here’s a good example. Only 150 cases of this wine, which was matured in 50 per cent new oak, were made. Perfumedand funky, cherry, redcurrant, stalky, sappy, meaty aromas are a delight. A silky smooth texture – it’s satin-like – bright acid and fine tannins support sweet and sour flavours of cherry, beetroot, cranberry, loam and spice. For the record, this is a style I love. Food match Chateaubriand
