Novum is a wine brand from Marlborough created by William and Rachel Hoare who started to release wines from 2016. Will started as a cellar hand and left as General Manager of Fromm after 19 years. Will’s family were among Marlborough’s very first contract grape growers and still own around 40-hectares of vineyards on land purchased in 1978. They are Cloudy Bay’s oldest grower.
Novum has a simple philosophy. They buy small parcels of grapes from established vineyards in special sites to make the very best wine they can. For them it is not about ticking an obvious box of being organic or biodynamic, interventionist or non-interventionist winemakers but more taking the best learnings from all areas of the winemaking and viticulture process and applying them to make the best wines possible.
Small is best for Novum as they focus on 3 grapes only; Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah. All their wines have been awarded by high scores from their first release and remain consistent in quality vintages after vintages. We definitely recommend you to try their mineral style Chardonnay that shows pure fruit flavours with a long and complex palate and well balanced structure.
