Winemaker's Notes

Sting's hit song Sister Moon reflects the age-old connections between earth, moon, nature and mankind, and gives its name to the estate's top wine, a harmonious blend of 40% Sangiovese, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot.

Careful nurturing of the vines over the last ten years under the expert guidance of biodynamic viticulturist Alan York has yielded extraordinary grapes. All are biodynamically farmed and made by leading enologist Paolo Caciorgna.

Sister Moon 2008. has aromas of black pepper and black licorice with blackberries. Full body, with soft and round tannins and a polished tannic finish.

Critical Acclaim

"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 you as you taste it. A blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Biodynamic wine."
94 Points

"The black cherry and blackberry fruit is shaded by sweet spices in this polished red, which is beautifully balanced with assertive tannins on the lingering finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet and Merlot."
