About This Wine

We're in the chilled red zone, but also a bit of an orange skinsy vibe as well with this blend of Muscat Rouge, and Semillon .

Interesting hybrid style, but ultimately who needs to categorise it, it’s what’s in the bottle that counts...

Floral, tart, spiced perfume, highly likeable, highly drinkable, nuff said.

The pressed skins were then added back to the fermenting Semillon and Red Muscat whole bunches for an extended maceration of 8 weeks.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Orange-ish wine, rose-ish wine. I like it. Hybrid zone. Hyper floral, so perfumed, old lilies in the vase kinda stink, nice, but sweet florals, some candied citrus too, a bit of red berries. Flavours sit in a mouth perfume, a slick of rich but light fruit flavours, so fruit, cloying texture, misses some refreshment factor but delivers something interesting, unique, edgy, needs a good chill to tighten up, a good gateway natural wine for those on the sweeter, fruitier tip." - Mike Bennie (Wine Front)

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you.
