Peccavi

The Peccavi Wines Range


We believe that iconic wines are made in the vineyard, so through extensive research, passion and dedication, have sourced vines from the world's finest clonal selections.

Wines bearing the “Peccavi” label are from 100% estate grown fruit, hand-harvested, hand sorted and handcrafted to produce outstanding wine in the Bordeaux style with new world methods.

Our 'The Estate' label wines are the very epitome of Peccavi Estate. Only the most exceptional fruit is handpicked and then meticulously sorted by hand. Fermentation involves a combination of hand plunging and pump over every six hours and after an extended maceration, the wine is matured in the finest French artisanal oak for two years.

Peccavi Sauvignon Blanc 2020


88% Sauvignon Blanc and 12% Semillon

Pale straw colouring and a bouquet of gooseberries, cassis and a hint of tropical fruit backed by faintly smoky vanilla oak. The palate displays great clarity and purity with a spectrum of lemon, lime and grapefruit unfolding to a palate that has capacity, volume and delicate textures. Precise acidity captures and creates a defined palate of vibrancy, finishing with a balanced crunchy lemon acidity

The wines are barrel fermented in 500 litre puncheons. 10% are new French oak and the rest are older Chardonnay barrels. Oak maturation is between 6 to 9 months.

This is a wine we make for aging Fumé Blanc style and is drinking well now.

Peccavi Cabernet Sauvignon 2019


95% Cabernet Sauvignon from equal parts of Bordeaux clones 191 and 337 and 5% Petit Verdot

Not yet submitted for review

The varieties were vinified and matured separately in 225 L French oak barriques (around 45% new) for 14 months, before bottling.

On the nose comes a depth of aromas, summer fruits with cassis at the forefront, some rum and raison and maybe a hint of chocolate. Behind this are fine layers of lifted flowers, nuances of a musk perfume that smells deep and rich.

Structurally this is a powerful wine with an incredibly smooth texture and a wonderful mouthfeel that affirms the fine velvet tannins. The wine finishes with a great length and will be enjoyed for years to come.

Peccavi Syrah 2020


100% Syrah

Halliday - 95 points Gold

This Syrah is powerful, modern, and Rhône-inspired with peppery, spicy aromas of blackberries, dark plum and blueberries. There are hints of fresh chocolate/mocha oak and dried herbs. Underpinned by fine tannins, it is medium to full bodied, with a lingering core of dark fruit and smoky oak. Spicy, layered, gorgeous.

Treated quite specifically, the first 20% of fruit at the base of the open fermenter was whole bunch, with the balance of the fruit destemmed only, with no crushing. The cap was hand plunged over 10 days fermentation and then pressed into 1/3 new small format 228 L barrels to finish fermentation and matured for 11 months with monthly battonage.
