STORY

Elusive and fiercely independent Black Sheep wines that will not be pinned down. The Dark Arts is a range of wines from varieties that are not meant to go together, but work! They refuse to be part of the status quo; they are wine as art. Made off the grid in an unconventional style that is all about varietals in quirky combos. “Whilst at the winery I was introduced to Agent Provocateur. She enticed me. I’m one to push boundaries, but never have I done this before. “Who is she?” You ask. Agent Provocateur is a rare blend. She has a very distinct character, a truly unique beauty.”

   

WINEMAKER’S NOTES

 Our third Provocateur sees us with an established style of wine, but still without any preconceptions of which varieties must make it. We spent months working out who the contenders might be and meshed them together until the style was right. Truly every component in this blend performs a specific task.

   

BOUQUET AND PALATE

Cola and Turkish Delight jockey with star anise, raspberry, and rose oil in an estery bouquet that leaps from the glass, provided by the Grenache and Gewürztraminer. The Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier complete a textural profile that lends weight without sweetness. The supple textures of the white varieties form a perfect counterpoint to the grippier tannins of the reds.
