Our Wines…

Minko proudly practices eco sustainable viticulture with an ethos of caring for the environment, our staff and our customers. We produce wines which are balanced and elegant, and which enhance the flavour of food.

All our wines are made solely from grapes grown at Minko – our family farm in Mount Compass. We currently grow Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Savagnin, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Our philosophy is simple: grow excellent fruit in a healthy vineyard, pick the grapes at their best and minimise intervention in the growing and winemaking process. The objective is to let the quality of the grapes speak for itself.

Friends 2014

Pinot Noir Reserve – Half Tonne 2014

Reserve Cabernet 2010




The best of our estate grown Cabernet and Merlot have been perfectly balanced with some beautifully aged shiraz from our good friends at Coriole
Bright fruit aromas of plums and blackberry are complimented by smoky and honeyed oak on the nose. The palate is a generous balance of dark fruits, earthy  and gamey characters with a dusty tannin finish.

The yield was only half a tonne to the acre for this deliciously juicy pinot. Lychee, cherry and a hint of autumn leaves on the nose, raspberry and plum on the palate with a touch of spice. A nicely balanced palate with good length and a soft tannin finish.

A deep, dark red colour, this wine has aromas of eucalyptus, menthol, blackcurrant and spice. There’s sweet berry fruit with a touch of aniseed on the palate, that flows into a tight, robust and velvety finish. Beautifully integrated tannins.

Pinot Noir 2012

Merlot 2012

Cabernet Sauvignon 2013




Cherries, raspberries and prunes fill the nose and overflow to the palate. The soft lingering palate with a smooth finish and a hint of violet.

A complex nose showing berry fruits and spice, with a little vanilla creaminess. The palate is rich and smooth, with dark berry fruits and a layer of integrated oak

The complex dark fruit aromas overflow onto the palate; with additional floral aromas and a touch of autumn leaves. The palate displays balance, richness and length with a soft tannin finish.

Pinot Noir 2008

Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Merlot 2012




Slightly diffuse colour; a fragrant bouquet and decisive palate, with a range of plum, cherry and delicate spice flavours; excellent length to a wine of breed and class.

Dense, deep purple-red; rich, layered folds of blackcurrant fruit, and echoes of licorice.

Deep colour; a powerful and potent wine, with blackcurrant and black olive fruit ensconced in a framework of oak and tannins. A merlot built for the long haul.

Pinot Grigio 2016

Chardonnay 2015

Rosé 2015




Aromas of nashi pear and lychee with a hint of lemon and floral notes.
The palate shows creamy citrus with a hint of pear.

Three months on french oak. Toasty, oaky aromas combine with fig and fruit salad, creating a complex nose.The palate is toasty french oak combined with rockmelon and white peach.

Rose petals and strawberry with hints of underlying spice. Savagnin brings freshness to strawberry sorbet characters.

Late Harvest Pinot Gris 2013

Pinot Grigio 2014

Pinot Grigio 2013




Rich ripe pear and apple over stone fruit blossom aromas dominate the nose. Orchard fruits, hints of stone fruit and cinnamon are the main features of the generous palate. Well balanced, with good acidity and a creamy mouth feel. Sweet enough to handle strong cheeses and moderate desserts.

Straw-coloured; a well above average grigio with vibrant pear, apple and a flash of pink grapefruit flavours, the finish long and compelling with its bright acidity.

Pale pink-grey; distinctly varietal nashi pear leads the fruit, with crackling/crunchy acidity on the long palate. Almost frightening intensity, simply great for spicy food.

Sold Out

Firm, bright, tangy, minerally wine, reflecting the suitability of the climate and terroir; good depth.

Bright quartz; barrel-fermented and then matured in French oak for three months; it has zesty grapefruit pitch, apple and melon fruit; and good acidity is a given.

Aromas of green apple and pear with floral notes and a little lychee.
The palate shows light citrus characters and pear, with a touch of honey.
