Moon Curser Arneis 2017
Dry, light to medium-bodied white wine with a pale, lemon-straw color in the glass. The nose displays hints of ripe pear, citrus and white flowers, followed by notes of green plum and lemon on the palate. This is an elegant, crisp yet mouth-filling wine that is ready to drink now or best enjoyed over the next two years.
Moon Curser Afraid of the Dark 2017
Afraid of the Dark is a blend of three Rhone wines: Roussanne, Viognier and Marsanne. This is a dry, medium bodied white wine. The nose is highly aromatic with notes of stone fruit. On the palate, nectarine, lemon drops and candied ginger. Ready to drink now or over the next two years. Aging further will lead to the development of secondary flavours such as marzipan, honey and nutty caramel.
Moon Curser Malbec 2016
This is a medium to full-bodied red wine with a dark inky purple colour. It has intense notes of blueberries on the nose. The palate is elegant and fruit-forward with characters of plum, black cherry, sweet leather and oak. The wine has a generous, soft texture backed up with plentiful lush tannins and well-balanced acid. This wine drinks well right out of the gate, but could also be cellared for over the next eight years.
Moon Curser Touriga Nacional 2016
This Portuguese grape variety (traditionally used to make port) is used to make a dry table wine. Our Touriga National delivers floral notes, spice and red fruits, all supported by lively acid and tannin structure.
Moon Curser Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
This cabernet Sauvignon is a medium to full-bodied wine that is deep ruby in color. It has an alluring nose of cassis, blackcurrant and dried cherry. On the palate, the notes of black fruit continue, along with notes of cigar box and vanilla. This is backed up with a lush, smooth tannin structure. This wine drinks well now but will start coming into its own after at least two years of bottle age. It will continue to evolve and mature over the next eight to ten years with rewarding results.
