2nd 2 none wines reflect a synthesis of old world and new world wine making styles. They reflect vibrancy, they evoke memories and they stir emotions. Our wines have personalities that surprise and excite, and they challenge and demand the extremes of spontaneity and discipline from our winemaking team.THE PRODUCT RANGE
Today, the product range consists of the 2nd 2 none traditional style of wines and an Options range of wines - a range of grape wines infused with a hint of herbs.
The 2nd 2 none range of wines are remarkably aromatic, perfectly balanced, velvety smooth and refreshingly crisp. We aim for good expression of the fruit with a fine hint of oak, together with smoothness and length on the palate. We want our wines to say: "Here we are - the best expression of grapes the region can offer. Enjoy us."
The concept to develop the herb infused Options range of wines evolved in 2000 and research and development began in earnest in 2001 and the Options range of wines reached fruition in 2004 when the first of three infused wines were released. The following year another two infused wines joined the range, while the most recent, a sparkling, was released in 2006. Additional blends are to be released later this year. Each wine has its own identity and personality. The Options range evokes emotions, recollections and pleasures. These wines truly are a memorable experience.
