Firetails Wines specialises in crafting sparkling chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, semillon, chardonnay, malbec, and cabernet sauvignon, all with balanced aromas and flavours to excite the tongue. Mastering the art of winemaking, Firetail Wines has 4.5 hectares under vine, and harvests 1,000 cases a year from low yielding vines using low impact viticultural practices, delivering quality with the most intense flavours. The small size of the vineyard allows for the workers to give personal care and painstaking attention to the vines, creating wines where you can literally taste the love.
With an emphasis on wood, Firetail Wines uses handcrafted French oak barrels to age its wines, adding a distinct balance of fruity flavours with an undertone of oak. Similarly, the cellar door is made from handcrafted French oak, adding sophistication to the appearance of the small winery, reflecting the simple elegance of its wines.
