The winery produces four distinct tiers of wine – Q or Zeta being the best, followed by Series A, Fuzion, and Malamado.
The Zeta/Q tiers are made from the Vista Flores estate fruit i.e Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, and Chardonnay, while Serie A tier features only Chardonnay, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec.
Fuzion is the most popular of all tiers being easy drinking straightforward wines.
The Malamado tier is fortified to 19 per cent ABV, flavoured with different aromatics suitable for after dinner coffees and other imaginative drinks.
varietal wines are well balanced, deeply flavoured true to their varietal aroma and flavour characteristics, food friendly, and represent good value.
