Our signature wine, Talisman, is a secret blend known only to our winemaker, a unique embodiment of the very best wine our Hawke’s Bay vineyards have to offer.

The secret blend of varieties creates rare complexity and harmony in our Talisman wine. This seamless interplay of different varietal flavours brings the palate to life, while supple, focused tannins frame the long finish. This is a wine you can enjoy on release or cellar for up to a decade.

Talisman is a rich complex wine with aromas of cherry, blueberry, blackberry and blackcurrant on the nose. The palate is dense with plummy fruit and toasty oak and the finish is long and fine.

Excellent match with beef steak, venison casserole or rabbit.
