With aromas of black cherry, basil, rosemary and spice and flavours of ripe plum and dark chocolate the wine surprises with its refreshing acidity and softness (due to a lack of tannin).

Go Chilled - great on hot summer days this unusual, but delicious wine is best served slightly chilled. Like a Rosé with attitude, or a biker Pinot Noir! It loves anything pickled – try a mature chedder cheese with pickled onion, pickled fish, or our favourite – pulled pork with pickled relish.

This wine is made in the same way ancient wine was produced by the Sumerians and Egyptians. From evidence gathered from these old civilizations, we have reimagined what techniques they would have used to make wine. Using this methodology and choosing robust grapes like Tinta Barocca and Shiraz we have crafted a unique wine that is true to the ancient world of winemaking.

When I was asked what I thought of my experimentation in ancient winemaking, my answer was simple – I was “Over the Moon!”, hence the name we have chosen. This is an old English saying which means we are very happy with the result. I’d like to think that those Sumerians and Egyptians would have also loved the wine.
