  • Harvest Time At Vicarage Lane Wines In Blenheim Marlborough NZ

    The Sauvignon Blanc 2023 crop from Vicarage Lane's vineyards was machine-harvested on 26 March and 2 April, yielding 182.33 tonnes of good quality fruit. That was Vicarage Lane's 20th harvest!

    The harvested fruit was pressed at Spring Creek Vintners, just a few kilometres from the vineyards, yielding 142,577 litres of juice, which will be crafted into Vicarage Lane's 2023, the 20th vintage Sauvignon Blanc under the watchful eye of renowned New Zealand winemaker Alan McCorkindale.

    Initial bottling of the finished wine takes place in May and, after rigorous export testing to ensure the wine meets New Zealand’s high export standards, the first export shipment can be expected to arrive in Finland late in the northern summer.

    In general 2022-23 was wet and less sunny than normal. This caused higher than normal canopy growth, meaning higher disease pressure and more work to maintain the canopy. It also resulted in a little less direct sunlight on the fruit, which normally gives a more citrus focused range of flavours, but this season seems to be a real range of flavours.
