Malbec, Syrah & Viognier
James Millton has crafted this unique blend of red wine for the enjoyment of many people. A marriage of Malbec and Syrah with a a splash of Viognier. Dark and brooding with lifted spice, tingling aromas quite unique to this wine and its own natural surroundings. The taste is dense but alive with mint, chocolate, Asian spice, and warmth of a feather pillow for a fatigued head.
In the winery the process is gentle and precise preferring time to fine the wines rather than technology. Indigenous yeasts and bacteria are used and the fermentation takes place in stainless steel or larger format oak barrels, all housed in a thermally clad building.
Sulphur dioxide is used to allow the wine to travel and age however these levels are kept to a minimum. The properties are certified organic and biodynamic confirmed with the trademarks Bio-Gro and Demeter.
Traditional viticulture is practiced in all vineyards and all are dry-farmed, with no insecticide, herbicide, systemic fungicide or soluble fertilisers used.
