Syrah, Merlot blend
A field blend of West Auckland Syrah and Merlot, harvested together and crushed into one tiny fermenter. Hand picked, hand plunged, hand labelled - resulting in a palate woven with boysenberries, cherry, and black doris plums. This wine's gentle exposure to oak and fine latticed tannins emphasizes the fruit and the clay soil it hails from. The ornate texture shows this wine was made with a feminine touch and duly named "Filigree".
Moi Wines provides a locally made, focal point, artisan wine. The aim is to bring people together for those special moments while cherishing the Auckland terroir in the form of small batch premium wines.
"Yes, "moi" is the french translation for "me" but Moi Wines is not all about me. M O I is an acronym for "Moment of Impact" which is what I believe the wine should provide on the palate upon first sip. I want to make a positive impact in this world and wine is one way I know how to do that. Watch this space to how that impact will grow and evolve."
- Renée Dale, winemaker
