At the Apex

The inaugural wines under Nepenthe’s new premium Apex range were released in August. Comprised of two single-vineyard wines, the 2016 Apex Chardonnay and the 2016 Apex Shiraz (each A$80), the range reflects the exceptional quality of fruit being grown in the Adelaide Hills' cooler sites. “They are a modern interpretation of what the Hills can achieve, embracing the nuances of two premium vineyards and the unique characteristics offered by our single varietal clones,” explains winemaker James Evers.
