Our exclusive Cerno is a terroir based blend of noble varieties that best epitomise the virtues of our complex and time worn soils. Cerno in Latin means to sift through or unearth. We chose this name because Andrew Barns, our winemaker, has been focused on working towards the goal of trying to unearth this wine for over 6 years.After extensive work in the vineyards and nursery, Andrew has chosen components from various and unique sites on our estate that blend together to create a harmonious that has been defined as “Timeless”, “Symphonic” and “Demonstrates great depth”.

I waited patiently to taste my first Cerno and it did not disappoint. A wine worthy of its awards and reputation. It comes beautifully packaged as well. 10 out 10 stars if I could.
