Product reviews

“Sister Moon 2008. Aromas of black pepper and black licorice with blackberries. Full body, with soft and round tannins and a polished tannic finish. It fills your mouth and then caresses your taste buds. A beautiful wine from Sting and Trudie Styler. This grows and entices as you taste it. A blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvigon Biodynamic wine.”
