Our current line up...
This melon has a delicate nose of pear, apple and accents of citrus with a touch of rosewood and almond. Richly textured with minerality and a candied lemon character, culminating in a mouthwatering finish. The 2014 Melon de Bourgogne is bright, pure and appealing - ready for sun and seafood.
The 2014 Clay Hill is inky in color and has a dark fruited nose and palate. With great drinkability at a young age, this wine will not be in our cellar long. The perfect everyday wine at an everyday price.
Delightfully complex nose of fresh cherry and floral aromas of roses and wisteria that is complimented by accents of clove, cinnamon and vanilla.

Delicate nose of fresh red fruit with accents of honeysuckle, violet and a hint of mint.
