We just wanted to share this information received today! A new season's wine is always exciting to contemplate :)

2021 Vintage Report from
Winemaker Randal Peart - Kennedy Point Vineyard

I feel so lucky to have had three good vintages in a row. I came to Waiheke in 2016 and I was told how difficult 2015 was…in hindsight, compared to ’16, ’17 and ’18 it was a walk in the park. If you are a long term KP customer, you will know our wines are always full of character. Difficult vintages increase the character of wines. What you get in ‘good vintages’ is character plus beautiful fruit, plus structure and generosity which is a plus plus.

2021 was a long harvest. We picked our Reserve Chardonnay from Oakura Bay in mid-February and our last pick was at the end of March. The growing season was an average length but without a proper Winter the vines started growing much earlier than ever before. Vines need a cold winter. Also, there was a little rain mid-March which made our picker’s jobs much harder and we had to be a bit more selective with the fruit.

I think 2021 will be referred to as the Merlot year. It really out-performed everything else. This is the confluence of all the factors out there in nature promoting Merlot above the pack. This pack is a very high quality one though. 2021 wines will be full of fruit and have a nice acid too. Tannins will be pared back in comparison to 2020 but still firm. The wines will have a beautiful balance to them.

100% Pure New Zealand

Beautiful messages from Kiwis to eveyone around the world who is struggling with their own stuff, be it CoVid, politics, poverty, loneliness.

We asked New Zealanders to share a message with people around the world at a time when they can’t see them. We asked: “if you could encourage the world to do one thing, what would it be?” Here’s what they said..

Why is New Zealand so progressive?

A great article about our amazing country.

Your thought for a Monday

Keeping your holiday memories alive..

Life has a habit of throwing curved balls and it feels like there has been a lot of that happening lately.
During our lockdown (we are on day 23) we've been reflecting on what an amazing summer we had : the weather was magic, we met many lovely people from NZ and all over the world and whether you were hosted by Wayne, Graham or Glenn – we hope the memories of your special day on our beautiful motu (island) are cheering you up whilst you battle the uncertainty of what the future holds.
When times are tough in New Zealand we have a saying “Kia Kaha” : Stand Strong. So from our little island paradise we just wanted to let you know we are thinking of you; we send our warm wishes and we hope you, your families and loved ones are keeping well and staying safe.
Cheers from us
Jean and Wayne

5 Tips for Storing Opened Wine

Happy New Year everyone!!
If you simply CAN'T finish that bottle of wine, here are some tips for you. Personally I'd rather just drink it :)
Cheers!!

https://www.winemag.com/2015/05/15/5-tips-for-storing-opened-wine/

winemag.com These are the best ways to preserve the last few glasses of your open bottle.

Take a trip to paradise!

For the day trip of a lifetime, beautiful Waiheke Island in Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf is just a short 35-minute ferry ride from downtown. There is so much to love about the island including awesome scenery with jaw-dropping views around every corner and (of course!) fabulous vineyards. Waiheke produces wonderful wines, many of them win awards on the international stage. So we thought it would be great to combine our love of this beautiful place with our knowledge of the local wine growing industry - and that’s how Waiheke Island Wine Tours was born.
