Moonlight Trio, Stellar Organics
A well-balanced selection from Stellar Winery in South Africa, the largest organic producer in the country. Situated in the Namaqualand hamlet of Trawal, Stellar Winery is privately owned, with the workers having a 26% shareholding in the cellar.
Moonlight Shiraz: With its lovely red-brick colour and spiciness on the nose, this smooth, well-balanced Shiraz is a very easy-drinking wine with ripe raspberry flavours and gentle tannins.
Moonlight Chenin Blanc: A light, delicate, floral and slightly honeyed nose with well balanced fruit and a soft, rounded finish. Clean, fresh Chenin, deftly balancing crisp acidity with ripe fruit.
Moonlight Rosé: This engaging blend of two Spanish varieties has produced a typically fun and fruity rosé bursting with summer fruit flavours.
