2002 'Moon' Sparkling Marsanne

The first wine to be released under our 'Moon' label is something unique - a Sparkling Marsanne!

Marsanne has been grown by the banks of the Goulburn River at Nagambie for over 100 years. It has traditionally been made into wonderfully long-lived table wines.

We believe that this is the first time a Sparkling wine has been made from 100% Marsanne in Australia.

It has been made according to traditional methods, fermented in bottle with champagne yeasts, and matured on yeast lees for nearly five years - long enough for the characteristic honeysuckle notes of maturing Marsanne to develop.

The wine is a bone dry style with crisp succulent flavours and excellent length. It is good as an aperitif, with seafood or with other delicately flavoured foods.

Production: 260 dozen

Mail order $ 35.00 per bottle / $200 per case of 6.

2009 Marsanne

A crisp young wine with unusual character.

A bouquet of apples, butter and a citrus note remeniscent of cointreau. Relatively low in alcohol, at just under 12%, this young biodynamic wine is already showing a surprising richness of flavor from extended lees contact.

Production: 60 cases.

Mail order $ 20.00 bottle / $215 case

2008 Chardonnay

A fresh and lively Chardonnay with plenty of body and character.

The biodynamic grapes are grown on a terrace slope close to the river where the soil is mainly clay with a small amount of sand.

Barrel fermentation in new and old french oak has produced a restrained lightly oaked style. This is a delicate yet rich wine with aromas of candied citron and drying hay. The palate has a firm mineral backbone with well balanced natural acidity, overlayed with lush honeyed saffron characters.

The wine is drinking nicely now, and we expect that it will age well.

Production: 240 cases.

Mail order $ 27.00 bottle / $290 case.

2008 Viognier

A luscious, opulent wine of great power and extraordinary texture.

This wine is made from fully ripe, late harvested organic Viognier fruit grown in sandy loam soil. It is crafted in a bold traditional style. It has a bouquet of orange flower and peach blossom, an opulent rich texture and great depth of flavour. The finish is long, with a lingering silky mouth feel.

Production: 160 cases.

Mail order $ 28.00 bottle / $300 case

2003 'Midnight' Shiraz

A luscious Shiraz with a long savoury finish.

The wine is full of cedar, plum and dark fruit characters with hints of licorice and black pepper. The texture is plush and velvety, with some some earthy darker notes. A plateau of mouth-filling but fine tannins leads to a long savoury finish. It has been matured in new and old French oak, which augments rather than overpowers the fine Shiraz fruit.

At seven years of age this wine is youthful but well integrated. It is drinking well now, but there is plenty of scope for development over many more years in the cellar.

Production: 210 cases.

Mail order $ 28.00 bottle / $ 300 case.
Half bottles $ 15.50 bottle / $ 165 case.

2002 Cabernet Sauvignon

The Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in tough stony ground, where the vines struggle and produce a meagre amount of tiny-berried fruit.

The wine was fermented in open vats and basket pressed. It spent two years in French oak barriques, only a few of which were new, to soften the tannins without allowing the oak to dominate. It was bottled without fining or filtration.

The wine shows black cherry characters typical of our Cabernet, together with hints of mace, clove and cedar. With a firm tannin structure and naturally balanced acidity, it is built for the long term.

Production: 250 cases. Available in full and half bottles

Mail order $ 28.00 bottle / $300 case
Half bottles $15.50 bottle / $ 165 case (12)

2001 Cabernet Sauvignon

A deep, concentrated and complex Cabernet with a fine dusty tannin structure.

This wine is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown on tough rocky ground.

A rich complex wine showing the benefit of bottle age. It has the black cherry character typical of our Cabernet, together with mace, clove and cedar. The wine has a firm structure with good acid, and a restrained influence from French oak. At nine years of age it is drinking well and still seems quite youthful. It will continue to improve in bottle for at least 5 to 10 more years

Production: 300 cases (only a few now left).
Available in full and half bottles

Mail order $ 25.00 bottle / $270 case
Half bottles $14.00 bottle / $ 153 case (12)
