AmByth Estate believes in producing wines that are made with minimal intervention: letting the wine make itself. We do not use additives or other winemaking gimmicks to manipulate the fruit that comes from our vineyards. Many factors influence that year’s crop, and we want to taste these influences in the wine. We do not fine or filter and we use only native yeasts. We gently foot crush our red grapes (and occasionally some whites) and let them set on their stems and skins until full fermentation has taken place. We also strive to produce wines of normal, old-fashioned alcohol levels, so that we have drinkable wines which create that magical harmony between wine and food.
Wine is a lover of food, it should caress and bring out the very best.
We are proud to make interesting natural wines, wines that definitely tell you you're drinking AmByth wines. As of 2011, all wines are made with Zero Added Sulfites. The wines are aged in neutral oak barrels, stainless steel, terra cota amphoras handmade in Italy, or white clay eggs from Australia.
