Red clay over schist. East facing terrace of 30 year old vines. Aura, a tribute to the wind Goddess, who greets us most days on our high ridge. Three day maceration on skins. Our only single barrel cuvee of red from the small, but excellent 2020 harvest. This is joyful, fresh and quaffable. Enjoy! We recommend keeping a bottle handy for the warmer days to come. - Winery Note
Manon is the label for Tim Webber and Monique Millton, farmed from their high altitude vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. Tim and Mon have a strong belief in working with nature, and have implemented a number of different programs to support this. Everything in the vineyard is done by hand, following biodynamic principles, they have begun to gradually remove introduced flora, and replant with native vegetation, as well as encouraging native animals, such as kangaroos, who keep the grasses under control, but don't damage the soils through compaction.
A similar philosophy is utilised in the winery, with everything carried out slowly and without any additions. Bunches are harvested by hand, carefully sorted and then allowed to ferment naturally, with indigenous yeasts. Left to settle over the winter months, the wines are finally bottled unfined and unfiltered. These are natural wines - a pure expression of their site and fruit.
