2013 Duo (Sauvignon Blanc/Chardonnay)

A blend of 60% sauvignon blanc and 40% chardonnay were commercially co-fermented to produce a pleasant drinking style. Normally this combination would be of sauvignon blanc and semillon but as Clair de Lune does not grow this variety I experimented with chardonnay as an alternative. The outcome was a winner! The chardonnay softens the acidity of the sauvignon blanc and adds to a fuller mouth feel. Limited stock available from end of August.

2014 Blue Moon Oaked Chardonnay

Rich, complex and with a textured palate, this medium-bodied wine has a range of pear-apple fruit flavours. Fermenting in French oak with an extended maturation resulted in a lovely flavoured wine with natural acidity.

Screw cap 750ml   

Price per bottle:  $27.00 

Price per case: $324.00 *Nearly Sold Out*

 

2015 Blue Moon Oaked Chardonnay

Just released and made in an almost identical style to the 2014 above. A totally different, much wetter, growing season in Kardella has produced fruit that has a lighter structure on the palate. The aromatic is quite different, more closed than the 2014 and the palate is not as broad. Expect a more neutral nose and palate, consistent with a quaffing style. Best for immediate drinking once opened.

Screw cap 750ml   

Price per bottle:  $20.00 

Price per case: $240.00


2016 Super Moon Sparkling Chardonnay

The base wine has been made from premium Chardonnay grapes that has undergone a secondary fermentation in the bottle in the traditional French manner with extended lees (yeast) development occurring. This will result in a sparkling with bready, yeasty, doughy characters on the nose and palate. The next step is the process is to disgorge the wine, which is planned for early spring.

2015 Mr Quincey

Made in my traditional style, this unusual fortified (20% alcohol) quince wine (Cydonia oblonga) has two taste sensations: sweet on the front palate but then finishing long and dry. An excellent companion to a cheese platter.

Screw cap 375ml   

Price per bottle:  $25.00  

Price per case: $300.00

2015 Blue Moon Pinot Noir 

A medium-bodied pinot derived from the post-fermentation pressings, adding a silky tannin mouth feel with attractive primary cherry/plum fruit flavours. Matured in French oak for twelve months, It has a  a lighter colour and mouth-feel than the Super Moon.

Twin-top Cork 750ml          

Price per bottle: $27.00

Price per case: $324.00

 

2016 New Moon Rosť

A blend of 75% pinot noir, with 25% Shiraz and Merlot grapes, was co-fermented creating a delicate dry style. This strawberry-coloured beverage has resulted from very limited contact between juice and skins. Ideally suited for the spring/summer luncheon. This Rosť is dry but offers and almost candied aromatic when first opened.

Screw cap 750ml           

Price per bottle: $25.00

Price per case: $300.00

 

2015 Super Moon Pinot Noir

The Super Moon Pinot Noir is available to purchase now. Like the 2014 Super Moon Pinot, the 2015 Pinot Noir was hand-picked, and offers the higher sugar development in the berry and full-palate mouth-feel. Extended French oak maturation (seventeen months) was also undertaken and a heavier-structured wine (compared with the Blue Moon Pinot) has emerged.

Diam Cork 750ml           

Price per bottle: $37.00

Price per case: $444.00

 

2013 Super Moon Sparkling Shiraz (Late release)

The base wine Shiraz was taken through a traditional bottle fermentation. Time on its lees has added complexity in the form of bready, doughy characters. These are supported by secondary spice and cracked pepper flavours from the original oak fermentation. This wine has been well-received and is nearly sold out.

Conglomerate cork and muselet 750ml          

Price per bottle: $30.00
