Pale straw in colour


A lifted, delicate nose with fresh lemon zest, green apple and pear notes which are enhanced by a subtle savoury complexity.


A fresh, fruit driven palate with a fine persistent bead. Layers of cream and softness, derived from the malolactic and bottle fermentation are complemented by the crisp, clean finish.

Food Matching

A delightful, refreshing aperitif, also a great accompaniment to a range of appetisers, fresh light seafood dishes, salads and fresh fruit.

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
