NB. The 2003 harvest was dramatically affected by the October 2002 Hawkes Bay frost. Since then a major frost protection system has been installed at Keltern, and paid for itself within two years.

The Keltern vineyard was under redevelopment during 2012-2014 and half of the total vineyard was replanted with the high performing chardonnay variety.
