The fruit is sourced from two vineyards, situated at Lenswood and Echunga, each contribute unique nuances to the flavour profile of the wine.

Pale yellow in colour.


Classic varietal aromas of nectarine and peach complemented by subtle citrus notes.


A fresh and elegant wine with pure fruit flavours of nectarine enhanced by crisp citrus acidity and a long, dry finish.

Food Matching

Perfect with white fleshed fish or salmon. Also matches perfectly to chicken dishes such as roasted French garlic chicken.

Winery Profile

5 Red Star Winery - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2014

Nepenthe quickly established its reputation as a producer of high quality wines, but when founder Ed Tweddell died unexpectedly in 2006, the business was purchased by McGuigan Simeon the following year. The winery was closed in 09, and winemaking operations transferred to Australian Vintage, McGuigan Simeons principal SA winery. (The Nepenthe winery has since been purchased by Peter Leske and Mark Kozned, and provides contract winemaking services via their Revenir venture.) Nepenthe has over 100ha of close-planted vineyards spread over four vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, with an exotic array of varieties. Exports to the UK, the US and other major markets.James Halliday
