The winemaking at Black Estate is simple. It starts with hand-picked, estate-grown, and organic fruit from our three North Canterbury vineyard sites. Then fermented with wild, vineyard-derived yeasts. We don’t fine, or even filter when possible, in order to preserve character. Once bottled, our wines reflect the unique characteristics of each vineyard. Damsteep is influenced by limestone and elevation. Rich clays in Home vineyard produce wines with depth and texture. And Netherwood, one of the oldest in the region. Enjoying our wines is a reflection of the love we have for this land.
