At Eagles’ Nest we specialise in wines that truthfully represent our terroir. A Viognier, peachy, light, crispy, and dry, a lunchtime wine with a faint hint of wood. A Shiraz, spicy, peppery and chocolatey, a complex wine, with a European nose, and flavours of the typical warm climate SA varietals. And the Merlot, a smooth, soft, fruity wine, that is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
Only French oak is issued from 6 different coopers. The philosophy for the reds is one third new wood, one third second fill and one third third fill barrels. The wines are expected to lie in barrel for 18 to 24 months. The Viognier regime is third fill barrels only, for 7 to 11 months. The total production is limited to about 103,000 bottles per annum of which only about 9000 are Viognier.
