Dessert Wines

With an ever increasing interest in Dessert style wines, we have endeavoured to create some different styles that we feel are reflective of grapes grown in this region and are more suitable for our climate.

Our quartet consists of a lightly botrytised late picked Semillon 'Silver Moon', our lightly spritzy Moscato style late picked Semillon 'Luna Spark', our Dessert Shiraz 'Luna Rouge', and our Late Picked Gewurztraminer 'Moondance'.

To order some of this fantastic wine, simply visit our online Cellar Door to order directly online. If you prefer, print out a copy of our order form, fill it out and fax or post it in.
