Message from Sam Miranda
Our family have been making wine since the 1930’s, so I grew up with wine in my veins but it wasn’t until I turned 25 that I decided to come back into the industry and start at the bottom.
I have embraced the whole Italian lifestyle in everything I make and do, and this is shown through the high caliber wines I will continue to produce for you all to enjoy.
Come along and experience a virtual tour of our Cellar Door!
Sam’s notes on Botrytis
Botrytis wines are one of my favorite styles of wine. It is always a miracle how vibrant and bright these wines turn out in the bottle when you consider they are made from grapes affected by the Botrytis Fungi that causes the grapes to literally rot on the vine. The resultant dessert wines are among some of the world’s greatest wines and can age gracefully for 20-30 years.
The palate is luscious yet finishes with a bright grip of acid on the palate. A perfect match for Pannacotta, Pavlova or as an accompaniment to a cheese board.

Col Fondo Prosecco
Col Fondo literally means “With The Bottoms”
Secondary fermentation in bottle with the yeast lees kept to preserve the wine and add complexity to the palate. It is recommended to gently roll the bottle prior to opening to lightly stir the lees so the wine has a cloudy appearance in the glass. Grown at our Myrrhee Estate vineyard in the cooler upper reaches of the King Valley. Lemon/lime aromas with a creamy toasty character on the nose enhance the savoury dry palate that finishes crisp yet soft on the palate. A classic style well suited to our Prosecco tasting platter or a range of charcuterie and hard cheeses.
No Preservatives or Sugar added!
