"Clair de Lune" when translated from its original French means "Light of the Moon".
The late French composer Claude Debussy created a magnificent piano piece, Clair de Lune. It has a beautiful, timeless and enduring quality and consequently was the source of inspiration for naming our vineyard and wines.
Clair de Lune's goal is to create wines of great finesse and elegance that will be enjoyed and celebrated by the wine and food fraternity thereby promoting our future.
Clair de Lune Vineyard and Winery is located not far from the ocean but far enough inland to experience a continental climate ideal for grape-growing.

2016 Vintage Sparkling Chardonnay Tasting Notes
We have 2016 sparkling chardonnay that has been resting on its lees for the past three-and-a-half years and it is currently disgorging in Melbourne. It should be available for purchase by the middle of September 2020.
The base wine has been made from premium Chardonnay grapes that have undergone a secondary fermentation in the bottle in the traditional French manner with extended lees (yeast) development occurring. This has resulted in a sparkling that offers bready, yeasty, doughy characters on the nose and palate.
Conglomerate cork 750ml
Price per bottle: $30.00
2016 Super Moon Oaked Chardonnay Tasting Notes
This wine has had an extensive maturation period (two and a half years) in new and old French oak and displays a gorgeous golden colour. Subtle aromatics are followed by a surprisingly big mouth feel, with a palate of overt oak and medium fruit flavours.
Screw cap 750ml
Price per bottle: $30.00
