Any Wines from Nepenthe
Powerful and extracted but ageing and tiring, this meaty and rather vegetal cabernet blend just lacks the density and ripeness to counter its slightly raw astringency. Backed by cedar/chocolate oak and suggestions of capsicum, there's some plum and blackberry fruit, but it finishes slightly short, with an edgy, metallic aspect.
Abundant style with pinot purity, depth, body, texture and complexity.
Colour: Pale and delicate, starting to deepen and develop a golden hue. Bouquet: Deliciously aromatic with fresh lemon, lime and citrus blossom. Palate: Delicate yet crisp and zesty, developing mouth-filling flavours of ripe apricot and toasty notes with a long, fine finish. The Nepenthe Riesling is made with an eye to the classic Australian style; fragrant, intense, crisp and finely balanced with great length. The high, cool sites in the Adelaide Hills impart both citrus and floral notes that combine to create a delightful and unique bouquet of citrus blossom.
Colour: Mid red with crimson tints Bouquet: Distinctive regional aromas of ripe strawberries and plums with a hint of mint and sweet oak. Palate: A well structured palate with fruit characters reflecting the nose, supported by fine tannins and fresh acidity. A beautifully balanced, elegant Pinot Noir.
Colour:Mid, cherry red Bouquet: Vibrant and lively with raspberry and red berry fruit complemented by sweet spice reminiscent of cloves and cinnamon with a hint of mint. Palate: Fresh raspberry and strawberry fruit characters with a fine, silky texture and elegant, persistent finish.
Colour: Pale lemon with a slight copper hue. Bouquet: Intensely aromatic; zinging with lime, citrus blossom and delicate musk. Palate: A crisp, fresh palate with citrus fruit complemented by fine, cleansing acidity and a long delicate finish.

Colour: Bright straw with gold edges Bouquet: Pure chardonnay fruit characters of lemon citrus and melon are complemented by secondary characters of oak, toast and a gentle note of nuttiness. Palate: A strong, balanced palate shows notes of lemon curd, toast and nutty flavours with a pleasing mouth-feel and a long, dry finish.
Colour: Cherry red Bouquet: Initially showing savoury notes of forest floor and spice, as the wine opens up ripe fruit characters of raspberry and red currants provides a sweet lift, with oak contributing subtle spice and toasty notes. Palate: The full, rich palate shows ripe plum fruit with a complex background of spicy and herbaceous notes. The mouth-feel is silky yet elegant and finishes with the velvet tannins that are a signature of the variety.
Colour: Deep purple red Bouquet: Dark and exotic, showing aromas of fruitcake, ripe plums, black currant and the sweet spices of cinnamon, clove and cardamom the variety is known for. Palate: A rich, full bodied and velvety wine with vibrant raspberry and cherry fruit, plenty of spice and a soft, lingering finish.
Colour: Bright crimson red Bouquet: Red berry and plum characters complemented by intriguing Zinfandel spice, black-olive, and the slightest hint of Cabernet mint.

The Tryst Red is an eclectic blend that combines Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Zinfandel. This combination works remarkably well, with each variety contributing its own unique characteristics, resulting in a fruit driven wine which is approachable and fragrant, yet is well-structured with savoury complexity.

Colour: Pale straw. Bouquet: We aim to express the varietal characters of Pinot Gris with support from winemaking derived aromatics. Our 2007 wine displays these characters in abundance; honeydew, melon, and pear aromas are complemented by notes of sweet vanilla custard.
